Follow up on quality assurance in education

The Faculty of Business and Social Sciences follows up on the work with quality in education primarily through educational reports. 

In addition, a number of internal and external evaluations contribute to the study boards' work with the programmes.

  • Study Start: After each study start, the Faculty conducts its own study start survey. The purpose is to get input for improvements for the next study start. This survey is supplemented every other year by data from Denmark's Study Survey, which contains a number of questions regarding the study start.
  • Courses: Towards the end of each semester, all regular courses are evaluated, as well as courses primarily with supervision (e.g. project-oriented courses, internships, business projects, etc.), bachelor projects and theses. The purpose is to get input from students for the development of the courses.
  • Programmes: Via Denmark's Study Survey, the students answer a number of questions that relate to their entire programme. The purpose of the evaluation is to follow up on whether the students find that the programmes have the right level, as well as the right academic content and a pedagogical quality that supports their learning and achievement of their goals through their education. The evaluation provides important information about, among other things, the teaching in general, learning opportunities, exams, feedback, the coherence of the education process, the degree qualifications profile gained and their overall satisfaction. Furthermore, at least once every six years programmes are evaluated with the involvement of an external panel consisting of up to several core academic experts and, for example, representatives of companies. Involvement of an external panel contributes to the further development of the objectives of the programme’s academic content and organisation, provides new angles and ideas in relation to the education provided as well as challenges and contributes to a continuous reflection together with the management and teachers of the education given.
  • Graduates: Denmark's Study Survey contains a number of questions that focus on the students' transition to the labor market and the applicability of the education completed. These questions are sent to the last three cohorts of graduates from the master's programmes, and the answers provide the boards of studies and the faculty with important knowledge for the work on the relevance of the programmes.
