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!
On Wednesday, Suitable for Business hosted this year’s pre-event, a so-called Innovation Battle held at Pumpehuset in central Copenhagen. The point of the evening was to explore the concept of innovation; what is innovation? How do we create innovation? How can innovation create value for society as a whole? Can we combine education and innovation? How can students become more innovative?
On the first day of this year’s conference we are very excited to be presenting a panel debate on how the social sciences and humanities can create value in future business life. Suitable for Business truly believes that people from such fields of study as the humanities and the social sciences have lots to offer in terms of skills and engagement.
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.
Suitable for Business is proud to reveal the name of the second keynote speaker of this year’s conference: Francesco Avvisati from the Organization of Economic Co-operation and Development, OECD. He will be speaking on the 21st March.
WHAT is innovation? HOW do we create innovation? Join our battle at Pumpehuset on Wednesday the 14th of March from 17-19.
Suitable for Business will in collaboration with Future Navigator host an exclusive evening event the 20 March. It is our vision that this will scale the case participants experience from the conference and case days. On tuesday evening there will be a workshop with Henrik Hovgaard from Future Navigator, about employability and career-focused self-creation.
Suitable for Business is proud to reveal the name of our first keynote speaker: Professor Henry Etzkowitz from Stanford University.
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.
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.
