Best internship company for 2022 wanted!

Students from the Academy’s 28 higher education programmes can now nominate their internship company as Denmark's best internship company.

Now you and your internship company can also be part of the race to be crowned as Denmark’s best internship experience.

Business Academy Aarhus invites all former and current students in an internship – in Denmark or internationally – to take part in the competition.

Internships are the DNA of business academies

‘The interaction with companies is the central focal point for us. This competition adds even more emphasis to the valuable partnership we have with companies and our practice-orientated educational programmes, which is the DNA of business academies,’ says  Anne Storm Rasmussen, Business Academy Aarhus’ Rector.

A tribute to the good cooperation

Every year, over 2,000 students from Business Academy Aarhus do an internship. An internship is compulsory on all of Business Academy Aarhus’ higher education programmes. The competition presents a perfect opportunity for the students to give their internship company a pat on the back and say thanks.

‘During their internship, students really get to use their skills and convert their knowledge into value. For many of our students, an internship also opens the door to a job.’ says Rector Anne Storm Rasmussen.

Aarhus interns are often at the top of the podium

Students from Business Academy Aarhus are typically represented on the award podium at the national final every two years. The Academy’s students and their internship companies have thus won the main prize three times, the Jury’s Special Prize once and the Audience’s Award once. In 2021, the Academy’s finalist even became a double winner.

  • At the final at the Centraværksted in Aarhus in 2021 (pictured), Agro Business and Landscape Management student, Michelle Nielsen and Danish Agro won the main prize AND the Audience’s award, after winning the local final at Business Academy Aarhus.
