  • Fri Jul 3: Maersk and Carlsberg Visit

    Posted on July 7th, 2015 prashanth No comments

    We arrived in the hotel previous night; we all met in the hotel lobby for Dinner. After dinner a small group left to walk around in the city. After going around for a while we ended up in a small English pub. This little place had a bit of the English pub charm however it was very quiet and the small. We decided to find a better place and started walking few blocks. We met the other group in the new bar. We all tasted couple of beers and spent the evening in that bar. It was one of the very good evenings with our student group.

    Most of us were very happy that it was a late start in the morning to Maersk. Maersk was few minutes drive from our hotel. The HR person from Maersk headed the meeting. She had invited two representatives from Maerskā€™s internal consulting group and one representative from sales group. Internal consulting group concept was a new concept. Representatives their internal consulting group explained how their group functions. I personally felt that the internal consulting group concept might not be very effective. After the internal consulting group presentation, the sales team representative explained the business from sales perspective.

    After Maersk we visited Carlsberg Beer Company. One of the tour guides took us for a facility/the area tour. After the tour they gave each of us coupons for 2 beers each. All of us tasted their beers and spent some time in their museum.

    I had already starting to miss everyone because it was the last day. I was leaving to Belgium to meet my family that evening. I missed the last day dinner in Copenhagen. Overall the study abroad program was very good. We visited 13 companies, learnt about their supply chain, production processes and their business in general. We also got an opportunity to meet and know everyone in the group better.
