Employer panels

The employer panels at Aarhus BSS are made up of representatives from public and private sector companies, organisations and institutions. The members of the individual panels must have experience in and insight into the educational area and the areas of employment to which the respective study programmes provide access.

Appointments to the employer panels are made by the Rector on recommendation from the Dean. The individual members are appointed for two years at a time.

The employer panels meet with boards of studies and other representatives for the school 1-2 times a year. The role of the employer panels includes:

  • providing advice on the study programmes at Aarhus BSS, including their relevance and interaction with society in general, the candidates’ qualifications and admission requirements for the programmes.
  • contributing current knowledge about skills requirements of the labour market, thus providing advice about the development of the study programmes as well as their content and structural planning.
  • putting forward proposals for new education initiatives with regard to both existing and future degree programmes.
  • developing the working relationship between the individual study programmes and the labour market.
  • taking an overall view of internal and external assessments of the programmes. 

The employer panels at Aarhus BSS have been established in pursuance of Ministerial Order concerning Universities.
