Danish Ambassador: A Danish education is a good investment

Denmark Day offered the participating Chinese students a taste of Denmark and of the unique opportunities for combining a world-class education in Denmark with in-the-job training and career opportunities in internationally recognised Danish companies. The Danish ambassador to China, Mr. Friis Arne Petersen, opened the event and made it clear to Chinese students why a Danish education is a good investment in their future career:

“By studying in Denmark you acquire new skills and qualifications that are of great value when starting your career. You improve your employability -  your chance of getting the job of your dreams. In short, a Danish university education is an investment in your future. Dear students, the Danish companies and universities are here for you, to provide you with knowledge and information you need - and to answer your questions”.
