Interested in gaining new academic knowledge while experiencing CBS PhD students compete for a grand prize? Then we welcome you to the PhD Pitch 2017 on 7 November at Porcelænshaven.

Here you will experience PhD students pitch the essence of their research in a clear and precise 3-minute presentation. They will compete in front of an audience and a jury of Danish business leaders who will award the best pitch of the day with a main prize of DKK 20,000 as a research travel grant, on behalf of The Carlsberg Bequest.  

As part of their studies, CBS PhD students contribute significantly to academia by introducing new and innovative knowledge within the field of social sciences and business research. At PhD Pitch 2017 the students are challenged to communicate their complicated academic findings to a wider audience.
