Sometimes it can be difficult to see the practicability in the courses. When we visit companies, it gives a new perspective on our lectures. When you hear a CEO explain their production planning or their way of cooperating with their suppliers, you can suddenly see some of the tools from lectures applied to real life situations. Further, after a company visit, you have newfound energy and enthusiasm. You feel a lot more passionate about your studies when you are able to see that they teach us exactly what the companies use in their everyday life. During the years we have visited companies such as Lego, Vestas, Dansk Supermarked and Pandora.
Once every year we go on a study trip, mostly to a location abroad. The students decide where to go, where to live, which companies to visit and what to experience. It offers a mix of company visits, local and national attractions and socialization with classmates. Visiting companies in other countries is a very interesting and exciting experience, as they conduct their business differently than the companies we visit in Denmark. Furthermore, these visits are a great way to make contacts in other countries, in addition to getting to know each other in a more relaxed environment.
