Rambøll crowned best internship company

The consultant company Rambøll Management Consulting provided intern Louise Kjær Petersen with the opportunity to contribute and grow professionally right from the start of her internship - and this has ensured them first place in Business Academy Aarhus’ best internship company competition.

It was an obviously happy Louise Kjær Petersen (on the right), who along with her internship company Rambøll Management Consulting in Aarhus received this year’s best internship company award.

Louise Kjær Petersen was one of many students who during the spring nominated her internship company for the award.

The jury was not in doubt that the consultancy company Rambøll gave 22-year-old Louise Kjær Petersen, who is studying on our Financial Management and Services programme, an extraordinary good internship period.

Without a doubt the best experience 

The jury justified their choice of Rambøll Management Consulting by stating that this internship period was the best in all areas. From the beginning, there was a good match between the intern and the company. The consultancy company has not previously had a Financial Management and Services undergraduate student as an intern.

‘Rambøll has without a doubt provided Louise with the best experience - she has been made aware of totally new areas of expertise and learnt so much’, says Janus Benn Sørensen, CEO of Innovation Invest and a jury member.

Tons of success

At Rambøll, Louise has been involved in a lot of jobs — which included tasks that are not part of her actual financial background. She has had customer responsibility for 15 municipalities and created a project for the Ministry for Children and Social Affairs. She has also been sales employee of the month and has the record for the most sales in one day. She also coded websites, provided management with input for a sales campaign, and created new procedures for the merger of institutions and GDPR.

Proud of the prize

Rambøll Management Consulting has acknowledged her efforts by offering Louise a job. Louise currently works alongside her studies at the company and can exchange her student job into a permanent position as soon as she has graduated.

‘We’re really proud to receive the award and at the same time honoured that Louise nominated us, totally unsolicited. It’s a nice pat on the back and confirms our belief that we have a good learning environment,’ says Senior Consultant and Louise’s mentor in Ramboll, Anne Dall (on the left) and adds:

‘Louise has been a fabulous intern because she has a so much enthusiasm. She is curious, committed and assumes an enormous amount of responsibility. When you give Louise a task, there’s no doubt that she will reach the goal with 110 percent.’

About this year's internship competition

Every year, more than 2,000 students from Business Academy Aarhus do their internship. An internship is compulsory on all of Business Academy Aarhus’ higher education programmes.

The crowning of this year’s best internship company pays tribute to the importance of good internships and at the same time allows the students to give something back to their internship company.

Louise Kjær Petersen and Rambøll Management Consulting will now compete in the nationwide finale, where her internship experience will compete against the winners from the country’s other seven business academies.

The country’s top internship companies will be crowned at a fabulous award ceremony on Tuesday 28 May 2019 in Børssalen, Copenhagen.

A student from Business Academy Aarhus won the nationwide internship competition in 2016 and again 2018.
