At our college we have many jubilee celebrations. In our view, that is a great strength. The staff members often stay for many years, and our colleagues express that they choose to stay because there is room for differences, freedom with responsibility, and because curiosity and initiative are rewarded. We are delighted to be an organization with many different professional groups who create joint dynamics in their cross-disciplinary cooperation as well as individuals who put their own personal fingerprint on the organization.

We consider it of high value to preserve the curiosity and the professional ambitions throughout all of our careers.

STRATEGIC OBJECTIVES

Køge Business College is a network organization which takes part in a range of collaborations. We continuously endeavor to develop as a flexible business partner by conscious planning of objectives and resources, strengthening of the organizational competences and stabilization of growth.

Since 2016, Køge Business College has been accredited as a VET Mobility Charter school by the Ministry of Higher Education and Science. We will continue to work to strengthen the international vision of our college. Students as well as teachers must have the possibility to become acquainted with studying abroad with an academic and practical content. Our core services continue to be Erasmus+ projects that are EU-supported studies abroad for students in the EU with work placement and language studies for three weeks. We are working on student exchange of classes with Germany through Interreg, and in the future also with France.

We develop in interaction with an increasingly globalized world. Our focus is on innovative methods, strategic partnerships with the business and educational sectors, and the development of tools to ensure that efficiency and quality go hand in hand - also in the future. Through collaboration, we constantly seek to break barriers - both geographical and conventional ones.

Internationally we continue to develop networks through Erasmus+ strategic partnerships, and today we are visible within European organizations and networks such as Cedefop, Eqvet and Efvet.

Our ambition is to eventually be an active partner in a completed CAMPUS Køge and, together with the other partners in CAMPUS Køge, to become the preferred business partner and knowledge center of the region.
