The timetable for 2015 will be announced in end-December 2014.

  • Classes will be taught either on Mondays & Wednesdays or Tuesdays & Thursdays plus one extra session on the first or second Friday of the Programme
  • The first day of teaching will be 29 June or 30 June 2015
  • The last day of teaching will be 29 July or 30 July

  • Exam: the deadline for submitting written projects is 6 August 2015

NB: Please note that you cannot take two intensive courses. You can either take one intensive and one ordinary course or two ordinary courses.

You cannot follow courses that take place at the same time - exams will also most likely be held at the same time. It is therefore very important that you check the course timetable before selecting courses.

Course change (add/drop)
Under special circumstances, you can to change courses from 15 April 2015 until Friday, 29 May 2015 (noon). It will only be possible for you to change courses if you fulfill the course prerequisites and if the course is open for course change which can be seen in the Course catalogue above.
Please note that you are expected to do Preliminary Assignments for all ISUP courses and start preparing for the course one month before the programme start, therefore change of courses at a later point will not be possible.

You can withdraw from courses on 20 June 2015 at the latest.

Preliminary Assignment
All courses include Preliminary Assignments in class 1.

Objective
To provide students with an incentive to start learning about the subject matter of the course before the start of the classes with a formalized activity that will ‘jump-­start’ their learning, thereby assisting them to get maximum value from the course.

Content
These assignments should focus on introductory material on the subject of the course (text chapters, journal papers, video clips, etc.) with the aim of preparing for a specified task scheduled for Class 1 (first week of classes). The work required from students should equate to 4‐5 hours of preparation.

Structure
These assignments can be structured in various ways. For example, quizzes, short written reports, or presentations with a few PowerPoint slides can be used. They are aimed at providing students with practice in doing assignments and are not assessed Pass/Fail.

Schedule
All materials will be uploaded on the LEARN learning platform one month before the programme start.
The assignments will be scheduled for Class 1. As these assignments will not be assessed Pass/Fail, no retry options will be given.

Impact
There will be no direct impact on final course grades, but preparing the assignment should help students to have a higher level of learning right from the start of the course with the consequence that they may be able to obtain a higher grade in the final examination.

Mandatory Mid-term Assignment
All courses include Mandatory Mid-term Assignments in class 6, and these assignments are the mandatory requirement for sitting Final Examinations.

Objectives
  • To establish a formal prerequisite for sitting Final Examinations as an additional quality measure for ISUP courses
  • To provide students and faculty with an indication of the effectiveness of the knowledge transfer process at the half‐way point in the course

Content
These assignments draw on course content, including all resource materials from the first five classes

Structure
These assignments will take the form of quizzes, short written reports, or presentations with a set of PowerPoint slides

Schedule
The assignments will be presented in detail during Class 1 and will be scheduled for Class 6. For students whose performance on these assignments is assessed as ’Fail’, there will be the possibility of a retry attempt during Class 7 and, if necessary, a second retry attempt in Class 8.
NB: It is NOT possible to make special arrangements with individual ISUP faculty members

Impact
Since these assignments are the mandatory requirement for sitting Final Examinations, the names of all students who do not pass after a first retry attempt (and a second retry attempt, if necessary) are removed from the Final Examination Lists for the courses and these students will not be allowed to enter the examination room in the case of Written Examinations or to have their Home Assignments graded.

These assignments do not contribute to the final grades for ISUP courses at present, but they will determine whether student names are on Final Examination Lists. The names of students who do not pass after a first retry attempt (and a second retry attempt, if necessary) are removed from the Final Examination Lists and these students will not be allowed to enter the examination room for Written Examinations or to have their Home Assignments graded.
ECTS credits and class attendance
Each ISUP course is worth 7.5 ECTS credits, and two courses are equal to 15 ECTS or half a semester's full course load at CBS.

The work load in ISUP is 225 student work hours per course, and this includes participating in classes, course reading, group work and exams/written projects. A large portion of the learning process in our courses is outside of class, so students should be prepared to spend plenty of time reading before ISUP and during the programme.
 
At Danish universities class attendance is not mandatory. However, ISUP is a very intensive programme, and we expect that all students attend and actively participate in all classes.

Course literature
Pre-course readings
All courses include Preliminary Assignments that will be announced on the CBS LEARN (Learning Platform) one month before the programme start and will cover reading and reflecting on several background articles, journal papers, video clips etc. that will form the basis of short presentations, problem analyses or self-graded quizzes in class 1. During the programme it will be very difficult to catch up if you fall behind on the readings.

Final reading lists
The final course literature and reading lists will be updated in the individual course descriptions on our website and in syllabi on the learning platform LEARN as we receive them from the faculty members. The final details will be updated no later than one month before the programme start.

Will I have full access to the library and its facilities?
ISUP students will be given access to the library facilities, as well as to all electronic journals that CBS subscribes.

Do I need to buy literature and text books for all my courses?
Even though a copy of the required literature for each course will be available at the CBS library, since you will be sharing this resource with many other students we cannot guarantee that it will always be available to you. Therefore, we advise students to buy the required text(s) and use the CBS Library for supplementary reading. Please note sharing of textbooks during an exam is strictly prohibited.

Where and when can I buy the literature for my courses?
The CBS bookstore Academic Books will most likely carry all required books as well as compendia and course packs for ISUP courses. Information about literature will be available under “Reading lists” if you choose “CBS-Copenhagen Business School” and then “Summer University” one month before the programme start. Books and compendia will be on sale one month before the programme start.

Different version and editions
Textbooks written by the same author often exist in different versions and editions, and even though they have the same title, they might vary in content. At ISUP, we encourage our faculty members to use the European version where applicable, but since many of our faculty members come from the US, Canada and Australia other versions might be used. For that reason we cannot guarantee that Academic Books at CBS will be able to provide all ISUP textbooks. Please check the syllabus on the learning platform LEARN for further information.

CBS Learning Platform LEARN
What is LEARN?

LEARN serves three overall purposes:

  • Students find course information, syllabi, reading lists, information on preliminary and mandatory mid-term assignments etc.
  • Students access exam information and submit exam papers (home assignments and 4-hour written exams)
  • Students post messages and communicate with their instructor and fellow students


How do I get access?
After you have been admitted to the programme, the ISUP Secretariat will send your CBS username and password which is needed for logging in
