Business Academy Aarhus to choose this year’s best internship company

Join the competition to decide this year’s best internship company. Business Academy Aarhus invites all former and current students in an internship – in Denmark or internationally – to take part in the competition.

Once again, Business Academy Aarhus will crown the best internship experience. 

Our winner will progress to the national competition in LEGO House in Billund, on the 16 May, when the best internship company will be chosen from all the business academies’ finalists. 

‘Interaction with the business community is pivotal to the Danish business academies and not least for Business Academy Aarhus. This competition adds even more emphasis to the valuable partnership we have with companies and our practice-orientated educational programmes, which is our DNA,’ says  Christian Mathiasen, Business Academy Aarhus’ Rector.

Tribute to good cooperation

Every year, over 2,000 students from Business Academy Aarhus undergo an internship. An internship is compulsory on all of our higher education programmes. This means that a large number of companies make a great effort so that the internship is a good professional and personal experience.

The competition presents a perfect opportunity for the students to give their internship company a pat on the back.

‘The internships provide our students with valuable work experience. This is where they really get to use their skills and convert their knowledge into value. For many of our students, an internship even opens the door to a job. The compulsory internship is therefore an extremely useful element in all of our programmes,’ says the Rector Christian Mathiasen.
