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!

Danske virksomheder skal udvikle og forny sig konstant for at klare sig i konkurrencen mod de hurtigt voksende udviklingslande. På det punkt kan humanister bidrage i erhvervslivet. Det sagde direktør i DI Lars Goldschmidt onsdag formiddag på konferencen Suitable for Business.

Humanister udvikler Dansk Røde Kors Med det ene ben plantet i organisationens historiske dybder, og det andet ben på vej ind i det 21. århundrede, er Dansk Røde Kors en gammel dame, der står overfor en række udfordringer og nye muligheder. Sådan omtaler Anders Ladekarl den organisation som han siden 2008 har været Generalsekretær for.

Kære Læser,

Suitable for Business´ ambition er at belyse hvordan human- og socialvidenskabelige studerende og kandidater kan bidrage til samfundet, herunder erhvervslivet. Det sker på to måder; via en case-competition hvor 50 studerende fra hele Norden skal vise hvad vi dur til, samt konferencen, der på forskelligvis diskuterer emnets udstrækninger.

Tuesday, 28 February 2012 20:06

Throughout the conference we will explore the concept of value creation through the lens of the humanities and social sciences and the role of these kind of skills in modern business life. But how can the lessons from these discussions get YOU closer to a concrete idea of what it means to apply your academic skills in the real world? March 21st 10.30-12.00 Suitable for Business 2012 brings you two inspirational stories on how you move from the ivory tower of abstract academia to new ways of thinking 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.
