Winner of Danske Thesis 2010
This is the sixth consecutive year that the Group offers the popular thesis programme. This year’s winners, CBS graduates Christine Clausen and Aaron Angert, have just been presented with the Danske Thesis award by Helle Havgaard, Head of HR. Their thesis, Photo of Aaron Angert, Christine Clausen and Helle Havgaard  which was picked among 18 others, focuses on how the Danske Bank Group could have strengthened its communication during the financial crisis. 

"We really appreciate all the resources the Danske Bank Group has invested in our thesis – both in terms of time for interviews and access to data. Because everyone involved has taken our work so seriously, the result is much more well-founded and useful. We are pleased to have been able to bring forward perspectives which can be used by the Group in the future," says Christine Clausen, Msc in Marketing Communications Management.
