Why you should collaborate with a company on your thesis

Having a limited network can easily be a limitation for you in the transition to a full-time dream job when you finish your studies. And as a student, your network and connection to the business world is often times limited.

There can be many reasons for your narrow experience and network within your specific field. Perhaps you have not prioritized working a job relevant to your studies or maybe just not have had the opportunity.

Your lack of a professional network makes it difficult for you to get in touch with the right companies and people – whether that be in the hopes of landing a thesis collaboration or perhaps a future dream job. This is exactly why you should kickstart your career by collaborating with an interesting thesis company when writing your Bachelor or Master thesis.

At Excelerate, you can forget all about the problem of a limited professional network. Our platform helps you get in touch with interesting companies within your field of study – completely free of charge.

Thesis collaboration between a student and a company

The best way you can get access to the right companies and business world as a student is by building a bridge already before you finish your studies. A great way to do so is by writing your thesis project with a relevant company. A company you could imagine yourself working after you graduate. At Excelerate we make this possible.

A company project collaboration means that you get a smooth transition from student to a full-time employee. At the same time, you give yourself the opportunity to land a dream job directly after your studies. So you don’t end up in a position you’re overqualified for or don’t fit in.

On the Excelerate platform you get to collaborate with a company interested in the same research and thesis topics as you. You will be working closely together with the company on-site for the months you are writing your thesis.

The direct contact and interaction with the company and employees gives you exciting career opportunities within the company. If it’s a good match you are most likely offered a job at the in the company after your collaboration ends.

Who knows – maybe your dream job will end up being in the company where you wrote your bachelor or master’s thesis?

A company thesis collaboration increases your chances of employment

The majority of companies in Denmark hire graduates in a full-time position if they have previously collaborated with the student. This could for example be a student job, an internship, or a bachelor or master thesis collaboration.

In other words, this means that you, as a soon-to-be graduate, significantly increase your chances of being employed in a full-time position if you already know the company from your time as a student.

In fact, it is the case that every fifth full-time employment of a recent graduate in Denmark takes place as a result of a bachelor’s or master’s thesis collaboration. A statistic we at Excelerate do everything for you to be a part of.
