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.
