TYPES OF COLLABORATION

  • Using Socialsquare as a case study. (Researching organisational processes, methods, or tools we use).
  • Using Socialsquares clients as a case study (Researching clients challenges and opportunities).
  • Using Socialsquare as advisers on a specific topic (Researching a topic related to strategic digitalization).
  • Using Socialsquare as a partner in a product thesis (Developing a product or a service).

Depending on the type of collaboration, we will discuss how best to support the student throughout the process. We stress that the student must always write the assignment according to the curriculum and the formalities surrounding their study programme. We are not taking the role of an academic advisor but representing the commercial perspective.

Depending on the capacity, we offer students a place to work from. However all agreements in relation to desk space are flexible and need to be adjustable based on our available capacity and resources.  We have limited space and need to prioritize the members of the organisation.

Opportunity to join our lunch offer where members of the organisation for a reasonable price get a nice lunch every day of the week.

What we expect from the student

  • Participation in demo day præsentations where you describe your project.
  • One or more blog posts. The perspective needs to fit the marketing plan.
  • Presentation of final project / access to read the project
  • Potential option to speak at a Socialsquare event.

The topic: Socialsquare needs to see the relevance/value in the project. It need to provide us with new knowledge and/or inspiration. Furthermore the topic needs to relate to the marketing themes Socialsquare are focusing on in the spring Q.

Human resources: For each student there will be a:

  • Student project coordinator in charge of overseeing the project and coordinating interactions internally
