A global company based in Denmark is to offer live projects to our students after a successful field trip to Scandinavia.
Grundfos, the world’s largest pump manufacturer, and LJMU students hit it off after meeting on a visit to Aarhus organised by Liverpool Business School.
Dr Moustafa Haj Youssef, senior lecturer in International Business, said: “As part of the course students undertake consultancy on live business projects, applying theoretical knowledge in a practical environment.
“Usually we work with local companies but to get offers from a global firm in Denmark is a real coup.”
Fourteen students on the MSc International Business & Management course spent five days in Denmark visiting a food manufacturer, a utilities company, an automation company and a large bakery chain, and also attended lectures at Aarhus University.
“We give them the experience of seeing first-hand the dynamics of business in another country, the inner workings of key international and regional organisations, and they get to speak with industry experts and company executives and get to know another culture,” added Moustafa.
Grundfos and Kamstrup, a smart-metering utilities firm, both have offered our students the chance to take part in internships.
