The K.A.G.E. Consortium

The K.A.G.E. Consortium was founded early 2015 to facilitate interdepartmental Knowledge - And Gossip Exchange at Aarhus BSS, in particular between the departments informally known as MGMT and ECON. The Consortium meets monthly in short Consortium meetings, hosted in one of the departments that holds a Platinum Departmental Membership certificate.

The K.A.G.E. Consortium is an open but elite organisation; membership is granted upon successful completion of the CAT (Consortium admission test). However, new staff members at Platinum departments will be invited to participate in the next upcoming Consortium meeting. In this way, the Consortium wishes to signalise openness and friendliness to our new valued colleagues, while encouraging them to complete the CAT.

The K.A.G.E. consortium always welcomes applicants from among MGMT and ECON employees. Admission is based on successful completion of the CAT.

The formality of the CAT is as follows:

  • Upon application to enter the K.A.G.E. Consortium, the applicant (henceforth: A) must supply 5 (five) questions including answers in a multiple-choice format, that A believes all master students graduating from MGMT-ECON (for VIP-supplied questions) or staff (for TAP-supplied questions) should be able to answer
  • In addition A will likewise have to answer 5 semi-random questions drawn from the pool of previously received questions (VIP/TAP specific)
  • The Consortium will process up to 4 (four) new members per week. A waiting list will be operated if required
  • The CAT will be evaluated as pass/fail, and the assessment criteria will be 80% goal attainment.

Please send you application to (subject: “CAT”).
