Business Academy Aarhus to choose the best internship company - 2021

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 become Denmark’s best internship experience.

Business Academy Aarhus invites all former and current internship students – in Denmark or abroad – 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.

Tribute to 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 for their effort.

‘During their internship, students 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.’ says Rector Anne Storm Rasmussen.

This is the 6th time the competition is being held

Students from Business Academy Aarhus have won the nationwide final twice, and the jury’s special prize once.

In 2016, our bachelor student studying International Sales and Marketing, Mads Fuglsang Hedegaard and Salling Group won and in 2018, our Financial Management and Services student Daniel Vistisen and EY Aarhus won.

In 2019, another Financial Management and Services student, Louise Kjær Petersen, won the Jury’s Special Prize at the national final in 2019 (pictured), after winning the local final at Business Academy Aarhus. Louise won because she had a particularly good professional and social experience at Rambøll Management Consulting.
