Advantages of a AAU thesis collaboration with a company
There are several advantages to an AAU thesis collaboration with a company. Amongst those are a broader professional network, access to resources, and insight into the company and the industry.
A broader network is achieved through the close cooperation you have with the company throughout the thesis period. You connect with professionals within the industry, you wish to work in.
This way you have connections with employees that potentially can help you get hired after you graduate.
Access to resources is often a hassle for students. With a thesis collaboration, access to interviews with employees and access to data becomes easier because are working on your thesis at the company’s location.
You can also get guidance from the employees who deal with the company’s challenges on a daily basis.
Many companies offer, as part of the collaboration, an on-site office spot for the student. By sitting in the office a few days a week, having lunch with the employees, and experiencing everyday life in the organisation, you gain a deeper insight into the company and culture.
This can be valuable for your thesis and give you useful knowledge about whether you can imagine working in the organisation.
