Business Cooporation

2020/2021

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

In this module the student will complete collaborative process with a Danish or foreign organisation, which involves a daily presence at the host organisation. This allows students to gain 10-12 weeks of valuable work experience while studying. During the collaborative process, students will work on completing specific tasks related to marketing (e.g. conducting analyses, preparing a specific marketing strategy), while working on identifying, exploring, analysing and reflecting on a marketing-related problem of their choice.

The purpose of this module is to allow the student to acquire practical experience through working in an organisation and bring their knowledge into play by trying out their theoretical and methodological competences in practice. The business cooporation will result in a written report, where the student explicates the knowledge, skills, and competencies acquired during the internship. A supervisor will be assigned to the student.
