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!
Today, Suitable for Business had the pleasure of presenting two women who have used their background in the humanities to pursue interests outside thereof.
First off, we were introduced to Mie Bjerre, partner at Copenhagen Living Lab, which assists public and private organisations in realising innovation and business potential. Mie has a background in European ethnology, realising while traveling that “understanding cultures, people and understanding why people are doing what they’re doing was interesting to me.” After completing her bachelor degree and studying in Amsterdam for some time, Mie felt she needed at practical aspect to weigh against her theoretical knowledge; this she got through an internship at Rambøll Management Consulting.
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.
