Aarhus, Danmark
ACC is an annual case competition mainly for business students from Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Finland. ACC is a non-profit organisation and is organised by 29 voluntary students from Aarhus University. Our aim is to bridge academia and the challenges that real-life businesses are facing.
ACC will take place in week 13, 2019. The application period opens on February 5th 2019.
  • ACC is the largest case competition in the Nordic countries. Throughout an entire week, the participating students solve two 5-hour introductory cases and one extensive 30-hour main case
  • ACC is a great way for you to improve your problem-solving skills and boost your CV
  • Each year, we select 9 distinctive teams consisting of top-students who compete in the competition. This means that there are plenty of chances to network with other students from the Nordic countries, but certainly also with potential future employers
  • All expenses are paid for the participating students (accommodation, food, flights, etc.)
If you would like to have the chance to participate in ACC 2019, all you have to do is to gather a team consisting of three students. The application period opens on February 5th 2019.

Master's thesis

The master's thesis is an assignment of higher academic level with specialization in a subject relevant to the degree. It marks the end of a five-year course of study. The assignment normally lasts 6-12 months and is finished before summer. The task is usually individual. In addition to subject specialization the student learns methodology, advanced writing and text comprehension. A thesis provides a thorough assessment of a problem, and often implies the collection and analysis of new data.

Bachelor's thesis

The Bachelor’s thesis is an assignment of lower academic level with specialization in a subject relevant to the degree. A bachelor thesis usually lasts up to six months and is part of a three-year bachelor's degree. The task can be solved individually or by a group. The student usually has other subjects while writing the bachelor thesis. In addition to subject specialization the student learns methodology, advanced writing and text comprehension. The thesis has less academic weight as a master's thesis, and is often more practical oriented.

Project assignment

The project assignment is often a shorter pre-study for a bachelor's or master's thesis, or a group project linked to practical work. The assignment usually runs over a shorter period. Many students do their project assignment and master’s thesis on the same topic. Some also link their project assignment to summer work. The assignment can be used to resolve specific tasks or do preliminary studies for a larger project.

Supervised professional training

Supervised professional training can be both paid and unpaid. Many study programs require the student to conduct 6-12 weeks of practical work in addition to their studies. Others have professional training or fieldwork as part of subjects. Contents vary from pure vocational training to practical work with an academic end product. Supervised professional training can be executed as one-off projects, or through long term commitment with a department.

Summer work

Summer work is usually full-time work done during the students' summer break (June-August). Many students do their mandatory practice work as summer work. This is paid employment.

Part-time work

Work that can be combined with studies, such as weekend- and evening work. It does not have to be academically relevant.

Full-time work

Work that cannot be combined with studies. Relevant for students who have earned their degree.

Internship / Trainee
