The course is organized in close collaboration with and involvement of Novo Nordisk, the large Danish pharmaceutical company specializing in the treatment of diabetes, and especially ReD Associates, a Danish consultancy company specializing in the use of humanistic and social science perspectives in studies that underlie their advice on marketing and management to a range of international corporations. We are going to work with the challence of "adherence" - i.e., how diabetes patients do and do not adhere to the treatment and other health advice given to them by health professionals. Drawing on the experiences of the consultancy company ReD Associates and others, this course will focus on the use and exploration of humanistic concepts as analytical tools in the development of business cases. There will also be room for a critical examination of challenges and opportunities in the relationship between business consultancy and human science. Students completing the course successfully will have gained:
  • Understanding of and experiences with the use of human science analysis in a practical, business context
  • A deeper understanding of a range of key concepts through application to case material
  • Advanced insights into a still more important field of applied human science
