The Business Committee

On behalf of the senior management team, the Business Committee handles academic issues and framework conditions that are common to all of Aarhus University's faculties in business and innovation-related issues.

The Business Committee works in close collaboration with the senior management team. For example, the senior management team may ask the Business Committee to develop specific proposals for initiatives or activities in relation to the area. Similarly, the Business Committee may submit proposals to the senior management team.

The Business Committee works in dialogue with the faculties and is supported by the administrative Coordination Group in the business area. In addition, the Business Committee includes the Committee on Education, the Research Committee, departments, administration, external stakeholders and others.
