Doing Business In

Do you want to solve a business challenge abroad with Novozymes and The Boston Consulting Group? 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).

The case Competition

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. You will participate together with 29 other top students from Denmark.

With DBI you will solve a complex real-life case concerning Novozymes in the destination country. You will be solving the case in 5 groups across disciplines. Throughout DBI, you will gain exclusive insight into how business works in the destination country through company visits and workshops. At the finale, the winning team of the case competition is found by presenting the results in front of a grand jury consisting of representatives from Djøf, Novozymes and BCG.

Gain experiences abroad

The destination country is always a place where Novozymes and BCG do business. You will have the opportunity to learn about the challenges and possibilities of doing business in foreign countries from professionals who are living and working abroad themselves. You will obtain great knowledge on the current macroeconomic, economic, and cultural trends in the destination country. DBI has taken place all over the world such as countries like India, China, Malaysia, USA, Japan, and Brazil.
