Marianne Grove Ditlevsen her 25th anniversary.

25 years ago, Marianne Grove Ditlevsen started as a PhD student in German at the then Aarhus School of Business – now Aarhus BSS. 10 years ago, she left behind German in favour of corporate communication, and today she can celebrate her anniversary.

“I think it’s fair to say that Marianne has been on quite a journey. In 10 years, she has gone from being new within corporate communication to being the current programme coordinator for our Master’s degree programmes in corporate communication. This makes her a key figure in relation to our degree programme portfolio. I think this says something about her curiosity and flexibility,” says Helle Kryger Aggerholm, section manager of Corporate Communication at the Department of Management.

The architect behind a new field of research
This very curiosity, along with her high level of commitment and drive, has been characteristic of the way Marianne Grove Ditlevsen has taken on her work. Through the years, her interests have included, among other things, studying investor relations from a communicative perspective, which has also resulted in a very popular Master’s elective by the same name. In this way, Marianne has succeeded in building a bridge between research and education.

Marianne Grove Ditlevsen as a person
However, Marianne Grove Ditlevsen is not just valued and well-liked as a researcher, but also as an employee, lecturer and colleague. 

“Marianne is a very kind and incredibly considerate person, who cares about the people around her. She often agrees to take one for the team, and she makes sure everyone is on board. She is a good colleague, lecturer and employee,” concludes Helle Kryger Aggerholm.
