Skills & Competencies

Before, during and after the theory lectures and exams, Wittenborg students are continually learning skills and competencies that can be helpful in the future work. Preparation for the traineeship plays an important role in key subjects that are continuously taught and strengthened through the year, including Languages, Business English and Personal Development Plan. Wittenborg students find the constant evaluation and coaching of their abilities tough and demanding, but will graduate with the potential to enter a career in an international organisation or company, in the knowledge that they have an edge on their competitors.

Wittenborg’s unique block system also allows for a unique examining system in which modules are examined in a whole day, and both knowledge but also a student’s skills and competencies are tested, in the forms of a closed book exam (knowledge) an Open Book Exam (application and competencies) and a presentation exam in which a student’s skills at presenting and explaining the answer to a research question are also evaluated, in relation to the subject.
