Partnership Programme

As a partner to the School of Business, Economics and Law, you participate in a mutual exchange that creates added value, both for your organisation and for the School: competence development, access to our network of researchers, and valuable help to develop your employer brand towards the School's students. Through the collaboration, you contribute to ensuring that our educations meet the needs of employers, and to attract the most promising students to the School of Business, Economics and Law.

Value for all

The School of Business, Economics and Law's partnership programme started in 1999 and is a long-term collaboration that provides benefits for the participating partners, the School and for society at large. The collaboration contributes, among other things, to:

  • increase the competitiveness of the business community through skills development
  • ensure the quality of education and that it meets the needs of business and society of today
  • attract the most promising students to the School
  • gain access to international academic expertise
  • the business community gets access to new, competent employees

Three levels of partnership

We offer partnerships on three levels: Senior Partner and Associate Partner. For public activities, there is also the form Public Associate Partner. What is included in the partnership differs between the levels.

As a partner to the School you get this:

  • Competency development
  • Executive Faculty
  • Recruitment and Employer Branding
  • Advisory meeting grounds
  • Exposure


    Each semester, the Partnership Programme arranges a series of activities, where our partner companies get to meet and listen to researchers and representatives of business and society.
