An advisory board is composed of representatives from private and public organisations. The advisory board advises and offers input on the quality of the programmes to ensure that they match labour market needs.
Input from each advisory board is actively used and incorporated into the programmes on offer from the Faculty of Business and Social Sciences – when developing new courses of study, as well as when revising existing programmes.
Advisory board members are appointed, to the extent possible, based on the criteria that they have insight into and experience in the relevant areas of study and career paths that the programmes open up for.
Advisory board members have great opportunities to:
- Influence how programmes are developed to ensure that the skills students gain from the programmes are constantly relevant to potential employers
- Cooperate with students in the programme and thereby have the opportunity to recruit student assistants, suggest and collaborate on theses, or connect with potential employees
- Gain knowledge and understanding of the latest research within the business and social sciences disciplines, and thus direct access to the research competences at SDU
- Take advantage of the possibilities for informal networking with other businesses.
