In connection with the development and sustainability of the American Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Niels Brock has established an Advisory Board. The idea behind such a Board is to give stakeholders a voice in the continued development of the BSc. In order to ensure a relevant educational program that meets the demands for a BSc, Niels Brock wishes to be challenged, assessed and inspired by relevant experts and stakeholders during the design and development of the BSc as well as during the delivery of the program. Another important reason for setting up an Advisory Board is to ensure an ongoing dialogue with representatives of employers, as well as with academia.
MAIN TASKS FOR THE ADVISORY BOARD:
- To contribute with future visions as to labor market developments and point to changes in competence requirements for current and future graduates
- To contribute with recommendations for the overall contents of the program within the given framework
the advisory board will typically meet once per semester.
