Aarhus University Seal / Aarhus Universitets segl


AU Challenge is a ground-breaking cross-disciplinary case competition for AU-students. In November 2019 up to 200 students from across all four faculties at AU are invited to collaborate in solving real life cases for 3 large Danish companies; Visit Denmark, Hedeselskabet and Waste Heat, Aarhus Municipality.

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are at the core of each case, which participants are asked to solve, and students thereby are not only part of AU Challenge, but also contribute to solving the much bigger goal of making the world a better place for future generations.

AU Challenge is open to all Danish as well as all international 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th-year students at Aarhus University. Phd students are also welcome. You don't need prior experience with case competitions to join, since you will be presented to an exclusive series of workshops, providing you with case solving and presentation skills. Participants in AU Challenge 2019 will also get a personal profile analysis as well as a team profile, and food, drinks and social events are included. You apply individually and applying is simple.
Apply here no later than 29th September.

Workshops are conducted by top-professionals from Ramboll, and will provide you with thorough case solving skills and presentation techniques. You are not required to do homework between workshops. You will grow your network with company representatives and expand your ideas on how and where you can apply your competencies. The series of workshops culminate in a real life casecompetition, where the three companies invite you to solve challenges well suited for a cross disciplinary approach.

The workshops dates in October 2019 are:
Teambuilding and teamprofile on the 7th or 8th October (15-19)
Case Solving on the 22rd or 23rd October (15-20)
Presentation Techniques on the 28th or 29th October (15-19)

You participate in one of three bustrips to visit the casecompanies on either the 4th, or the 5th or the 6th November (8-16.30).

And finally, the main AU Challenge casecompetition takes place on the 14th and 15th November, all day
