ECON's Teaching Assistants receive grants for their contribution to CBS


In collaboration with CBS faculty, vice dean Annemette Kjærgaard and the chairman of the CBS Scholarship Fund, Ole Wiberg, handed out grants from Timelærerforeningen to a number of talented teaching assistants on December 14, 2017 at CBS.  ”Our teaching assistants play an important role in CBS’ programs. They build a bridge to the business community and help prepare students to make a difference in society”, said vice dean Annemette Kjærgaard to the teaching assistants, who received grants for rethinking teaching activities, activating students in new ways and their engagement at CBS.

With impressive motivations, faculty thanked the teachers for their significant contribution to making CBS and innovative and relevant educational institution. “You have contributed quite extraordinarily to the development of teaching cases, and your cases are used across CBS’ programs and by many colleagues”, said IOA professor Lise Justesen to teaching assistant John Haukeland. “It is a contribution which is far beyond expectations and truly benefits students”. Praise befell all recipients, who all stood out for their significant engagement in teaching and advising students at CBS.

”We are thrilled to be able to recognise the contribution from teaching assistants and not least the practical aspect they bring into the classroom”, chairman of CBS’ Scholarship Fund Ole Wiberg rounded off. “It is simply impressive to see this level of engagement from alumni who return to CBS and contribute to teaching, advising and to CBS as an institution.”
