Students on the board of directors

Students continue to be the focus of everything we do. Academic Books was founded by students and today we have book shops at the University of Copenhagen, Roskilde University and CBS.

 

The majority of the members of our board of directors are students or former students, who all represent the interest of the students. The board is consulted on all major decisions. In this way we never lose touch with the educational institutions and what it means to be a student.

The students on our board of directors are also helping us to ensure that we stay on the right course and never compromise with our purpose from 1967: To provide cheap curriculum books for everyone – in the correct edition and in time for the semester start.
