Doing Business In

Want to solve a business challenge with Novozymes and The Boston Consulting Group abroad? Doing Business In is your opportunity.

What is Doing Business In?

Doing Business In (DBI) is Djøfs annual case competition and study trip, which is organized by Djøf and 4 selected volunteers in close cooperation with Novozymes and The Boston Consulting Group (BCG). As a DBI-participant you are handpicked to an array of unique experiences. With DBI you get a once-in-a-lifetime possibility to travel to a foreign country with representatives from Novozymes and BCG as well as 29 other top students from all over Denmark and from a wide range of disciplines.

With DBI you will, in groups of 5 across disciplines, solve a complex real-life case concerning a real challenge of Novozymes in the destination country and get an exclusive insight to how business is done in our destination country through e.g. company visits and workshops. In 2017 we will be travelling to Japan, visiting the mega-city Tokyo and cultural capital of Kyoto.

The destination country is always a place where Novozymes and BCG do business, so that you will have the opportunity to learn about the challenges and possibilities of doing business in foreign countries from professionals that have taken the step of living and working abroad themselves. Through the intensive 24-hour case solving you will obtain great knowledge on the current macroeconomic, economical and cultural trends in the destination country.

The trip takes place each year during Easter. Prior to departure a pre-seminar is held in Copenhagen and  a post-seminar/finale takes place after the case competition. At the finale the winning team of the 24-hour case competition is found by presenting the results in front of a grand jury consisting of representatives from Djøf, Novozymes and BCG.

As a participant you get

  • A community across Denmark and disciplines
  • An opportunity to use your theory in solving a complex, real-life case
  • A deeper cultural understanding and an opportunity for personal growth
  • A connection to potential future employers

It takes three to tango

SU- og fremdriftsreformen understreger, at der er tre aktører bag gode uddannelser: Den studerende, uddannelsesinstitutionen og arbejdsgiverne. Det fordrer et hidtil uset samspil kombineret med evnen til at se muligheder og kende sine begrænsninger.
