As a Business Partner with SDU, you have the opportunity to get closer to new talents and potential employees.

For business partners

Your visibility at SDU

In a partnership with SDU RIO, there are different possibilities in relation to communication and the meeting with the students at SDU.

To make it as easy and manageable as possible we have tried to gather all practical and usable information on this page. Should you miss any information for this page to be usable in your collaboration with SDU, please inform us and we will look into it.

If you have any questions, please contact us via mail.

Practical information

As SDU's Business Partner, you have the possibility to show content on SDU RIO's info screens.

You have a time period of 20 seconds available, and you can choose whether you want to display one or three pictures (evenly distributed in the specified time period), or a video without sound.

Content Guidelines

  • The content must be study and / or career relevant, and approved by SDU RIO before it is published.

    Content where promotion of eg. high salaries, good lunch agreement or number of vacation days is in the forefront, will therefore not be approved by SDU.

  • When you submit content, we ask you to decide whether the content should be displayed in all 5 campus cities or in selected campus cities (Odense, Slagelse, Kolding, Esbjerg and Sønderborg).

    Are you in doubt about the study profiles in the individual cities? See the tab 'Study profiles at SDU' on this page.

    Note that special formats apply to Esbjerg.
  • The content must be dynamic, and speak into a relevant need or offer right now.

    Eg. that you participate in an SDU event, opening for applications for graduate programs, relevant courses/events, offers for students and future graduates, etc. There are many exciting angles to address.

    Static content that runs over a long period of time does not provide the desired visibility.

    When the material is sent to us, it is therefore important that you make some considerations about the relevant viewing period. The same material can be visible on the screens for a maximum of  óne month.


To get content on the screens, you must create an image or video that fits in the format below:

Odense, Slagelse, Kolding and Sønderborg: 1920 x 842 pixels
Esbjerg: 1920 x 1080 pixels

Images must be sent individually and be in JPEG format and a minimum of 3 MB.
Video must be sent in MPEG4 format, and be a maximum of 20 seconds.

Content  can be sent to Line Krogh Sundstrup and Simon Kjær Jensen.

Tips for good content

  • Dynamic message that is relevant right now 
  • Keep the message very short and punctual
  • Preferably one language - so if a course is in English, for example, write only in English
  • As large text size as possible
  • Faces work well
