You and your fellow alumni are invited to celebrate Copenhagen Business School's 100th anniversary.
Over the course of the past century, each alum from CBS has written her or his own story as part of the greater history of CBS. With every new page and every new chapter, our collective narrative has grown in importance for Danish society.
From 1917 and until today, our tale includes over 85,000 individual stories, each with its own personality and ambition. Each account becomes a part of our larger community, able to be retold with pride and serve as inspiration for past, present, and future CBS students.
In this spirit, we invite you to return to CBS for Alumni Day. Reconnect with classmates, plug back into the CBS community with state-of-the-art research by some of CBS’ brightest minds, enjoy delicious food and, perhaps, share your very own story with us.
We look forward to celebrate with you!
The programme features significant research, leading the way for businesses going forward. Each talk is held by some of CBS’ brightest minds and will be curated by top researchers:
Why do firms so often fail when they go abroad? | Win or lose - Why the EAC (Østasiatisk Kompagni) collapsed while A.P. Moller-Maersk became the world’s largest | Sustainable development is our time’s greatest challenge. But what does sustainable growth look like? | På arbejde med liv og sjæl | Fake News on Facebook in US Elections 2016: Big Social Data Analytics of the Presidential Candidates | Driving competitiveness through servitization | Entrepreneurship and social responsibility by Distinguished Alumnus Claus Meyer |
