Many young researchers feel insecure about how well their skillset and experiences translate into the big world of corporate business. Let us collectively minimize this fear with people who know better! Lise Lørup and Øyvind Berle both hold Ph.D. degrees and work for the international consulting firm "Boston Consulting Group" (BCG). In this workshop, they will give us an insight into management consulting, where they focus on turning management challenges into meaningful and sustainable actions. In addition, they will also teach us what we can do to optimally present ourselves to receive that bit of extra attention from potential employers that can make the difference.
