Lillebaelt Academy of Professional Higher Education was established 1 January 2009 by the merging of branches of higher education formerly under the auspices of Tietgen Business College, SDE College, Kold College and Vejle Business College.
This merging has provided a new and strong institution with a very large and diverse pool of competence and development potential. This is both in relation to the development of new educational programmes and in relation to cooperation with industry and commerce in Region South Denmark and research institutions in Denmark and abroad, which in future will play an even greater role in professionally directed higher education.
The increased cooperation with industry and research institutions is helping to increase the level and degree of timeliness in higher education. Additionally, it has allowed Lillebaelt Academy the possibility to expand its offering of higher education – most notably at the BA level.
Lillebaelt Academy of Professional Higher Education has programmes at many different sites in Odense and Vejle. This means that both students and local business have better chances for participating in local activities. This affords a great advantage both for students who do not have to travel far to attend a programme, and for local business in the region that does not have to compete with businesses in the big university cities for the best minds.
