Aarhus University Seal / Aarhus Universitets segl

Employer panel

The employer panel at School of Communication and Culture consists of representatives from companies and institutions, where graduates from IKK are employed after completing their studies. The participants in the employer panel are involved in developing up-to-date study programs that match the competences companies and institutions demand of their employees.

Besides the School's employer panel we have employer forums at the individual departments to create a space for dialogue between the academic subjects and representatives from companies and institutions.

You can see the members of the School's employer panel and forums below:
