Every Hiring Manager’s dream is now a reality
Excelerate serves as a pre-recruiting service. This means we offer a non-committing work trial with university students to showcase how future employees would fit in the company. We do this by offering student-company thesis collaboration.
You, as a company, can search through Excelerate’s platform for passionate students whose thesis topics fit your interests and hiring needs. Allowing student-company thesis collaboration in your office can give you an in-depth view of their performance and cultural fit.
When the thesis writing and the collaboration ends, you will have a comprehensive understanding of who exactly is the right match for you. This way, your company can save money on hiring costs.

Afraid to spend too much time?
You get out of it what you put into it. In general, students operate separately from the company’s everyday activities. Hence, their thesis writing does not interfere with the company.
The time dedicated for interaction with university students is on average bi-weekly for 1-2 hours. That is during the collaboration period of 3 to 4 months. However, the time is most likely spread over various employees to conduct interviews, collect data, knowledge and other relevant activities.
We suggest that you have a dedicated contact person to check in with the student group once in a while.
The low-hanging fruit when it comes to seeing the right fit for the company is in the basic human interaction. So, feel free to invite students for joint activities – lunch with the team, Friday bar, teambuilding, or any occasional event that can help you get to know them better during the student-company thesis collaboration.
This is how it works
Find the right group
It begins with your company signing up on our platform. You can start the search for passionate students right away. Firstly, you pick the right student whose thesis topic fits your needs and send them an interview request. If a student is interested, they will reach out to you, and you can agree on the proposed interview.
Bachelor, Candidate, and Master students from all universities in Denmark can list their thesis topics for student-company thesis matching on Excelerate. Above all, these listings are anonymous – so the biases towards gender, ethnicity, and age are avoided.
Meet the students
At the interview, students present their thesis topics and themselves. There, you have a chance to have in-depth conversation to get an overview of the value they can bring to the table for your team and the company during the collaboration.
Confirmation of the collaboration
Once students have accepted the offer through the Excelerate platform, then it is your turn to confirm the collaboration.
In conclusion, this means that your company has officially closed the deal with university students for thesis collaboration. Congratulations!
Find and interview as many student groups as you would like – for free.
You only pay for the student groups you confirm a thesis collaboration with, and the student(s) you hire.

You can use the thesis collaboration as a pre-recruiting service. If you like the students and see them as a potential fit in your company after the collaboration has ended, then you can make them a proper job offer. The thesis collaboration eliminates the time and money you usually spend on recruiting and it minimizes the risk of making a bad hire.
Secondly, you get the newest research and knowledge on a topic relevant for your company, which the students will conduct for you. The results of the project may benefit your company to a great extent!
