VIA University College, Teko Design + Business

Scandinavia’s largest design and business academy within the fashion and lifestyle

VIA University College, Teko Design + Business (TEKO) is Scandinavia’s largest design and business academy within the fashion and lifestyle industry. More than 1100 students are currently enrolled in our vocational or AP Degree programmes within the areas of fashion and textiles, as well as furniture and furnishings.

With a wide range of further education and consultancy services, the TEKO Knowledge Centre and the entrepreneurial house TEKO Seeds offer new knowledge and advice to companies, employees and entrepreneurs within the industry.


All courses are taught in English, all exam papers are to be written in English, and all oral examinations will take place in English.

The courses at TEKO will give students a foretaste of the activities of the fashion and lifestyle industries. That is why problem-based learning, project work and case work based on real-life situations are widely used by lecturers and instructors. Furthermore, a wide range of business people from relevant companies are invited in to give lectures on industry-related issues.

During your education, you will acquire knowledge about working processes and perspectives in every department within the business; this happens through studies and cooperation across the different specialities. Moreover, intensive learning takes place in class discussions and guidance sessions on a one-to-one basis.


Through a work experience period in a company you will obtain in-depth trade knowledge, and you will have the opportunity to try out what you have learned, so far, in your course.


Through study trips, in Denmark and abroad, you will be introduced to the industry via company presentations and visits to relevant companies; experiences and insight which you can use in your future career.


An education at TEKO qualifies you to work with life style assignments in connection with design, technology and business. You are going to work nationally and internationally in connection with control and implementation of the design process – from idea to sales and distribution.
