Research, education and cooperation at the highest level

Jeanette Lemmergaard looks forward to continuing the work as Head of Department:

“It is a great privilege to continue as Head of Department of Marketing & Management. On behalf of the Department I have high ambitions for us to continue to strive for the highest standards in education, research and collaboration with external partners. These goals can only be achieved in interaction with the rest of the Faculty and SDU in general.  I look forward to working with the Department’s Management Team to ensure the continued development of a well-functioning and inspiring context for our colleagues and also an inspiring study and learning environment for our students,” she says and continues:

“External change presents challenges, but also new opportunities. Good solutions require co-operation around essential processes and decisions. It is my ambition that all the talent and ability in the Department and its core principles are enhanced through present, focused and attentive leadership. We will endeavour to challenge all colleagues to reach their full potential and will fully support them in taking that responsibility.”
