Student animate ideas...

Suitable for Business believes that there are great skills to be found amongst students of the humanities and social sciences; skills which the business world would greatly benefit from if only it took proper advantage thereof. Too often these students are typecast and dismissed.

We at Suitable for Business would reject this kind of thinking; students of the humanities and social sciences can enrich business environments through their unique approaches as well as more creative thinking. Through our work we aim to showcase the extraordinary abilities of students and thereby prove their relevance to the business world.

Each spring we host a case competition where students from Scandinavia are invited to solve a business case. This is an excellent opportunity for you to prove your suitability for business!

Efter en intens finale i den første årlige Suitable for Business Conference & Case Competition, hvor hold fra Lund, Roskilde og Københavns Universitet præsenterede deres bud på hvordan Røde Kors kunne løse deres organisationsudfordringer, besluttede dommerpanelet at holdet fra Lund gav det bedste bud på hvordan Røde Kors kan løse deres organisationsudfordringer. De studerende fra Lund Universitet, med baggrunde i Medievidenskab, Kulturel Ledelse, Kinesisk, Kommunikation og Urban Development præsterede dermed at bevise at humaniora er særdeles relevant når der er tale om værdiskabelse, og at der fra politisk side er et formål med at investere i humaniora og socialvidenskab. 

Formanden for dommerpanelet, kommunikationschef fra Røde Kors Tina Donnerborg, gav udtryk for at at alle de deltagende hold i konferencen udviste en enorm mængde energi, og påpegede at alle burde klappe dem selv på skulderen for det fantastiske stykke arbejde.

Inden vinderpræmien, en check på 10.000 kroner, blev uddelt, forklarede hun hvordan Røde Kors står overfor en stor mængde udfordringer, inden dommerpanelet gennemgik de 3 finaleløsninger i særdeles rosende vendinger, inden Peter Mogensen tog mikrofonen og forklarede hvordan man ikke nødvendigvis skal være fra en business school eller finans-uddannelse for at klare sig på arbejdsmarkedet, og annoncerede Josef Sjöberg, Erik Neppelberg, Isabella Posse Boquist og Nicklas Nygren fra Lund universitet som vindere, på baggrund af ideen om The Red Cross Embassy – et løsningsforslag der tog hensyn til både Røde Kors’ udfordringer i forhold til rekruttering af nye frivillige, og samtidig adresserede hvordan Røde Kors kan indtænke nye strategiske partnerskaber i organisationsudviklingen. 

Punktum var dermed sat for den første afvikling af Suitable for Business Conference & Case Competition, og det første skridt for organisationen, der har til formål at nedbryde barriererne mellem erhvervslivet og human- og socialvidenskaberne, var dermed taget. Hvad der sker efterfølgende er endnu ikke offentliggjort, men kampen for mere fokus på de kompetencer studerende af disse faggrupper besidder, fortsætter.

Suitable for Business is an organisation driven by dedicated students from leading universities. With the first successful conference taken place in March 2011, the exciting preparations for spring 2012 are now about to commence. Join us for a one-hour seminar followed by a reception and hear about of the relevance of your education and opportunities for becoming involved in the organisation!
