Graduate level courses 2017
We do not have waiting lists for any ISUP course.
Timetable and class format
(classroom allocation to be announced)
- Each course will be taught 2 X 2.5 hours per week
- Classes will be taught either on Mondays & Wednesdays or Tuesdays & Thursdays plus one extra session on the second and third Friday of the Programme
- The first day of teaching will be 27 June or 28 June 2017

- Exam period: 31 July - 4 August 2017 ("Home Project Assignment" hand out 28 July at 12:00 due on 31 July at 12:00)
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. Also note that all "Home Project Assignments" (a 72-hour exam) will take place simultaneously. That means your exam submissions must be handed in on the same day and time.
Students can withdraw from courses depending on the student category.
- CBS students taking ISUP courses as electives (valgfag) can withdraw on 28 March 2017 at the latest through the STADS self service system. After deadline please contact Student Hub for further information.
- CBS students taking ISUP courses as mandatory courses must get a dispensation from their Study Board.
- Nominated exchange students must have a standard workload of two courses equivalent to 15 ECTS. Any deviation from the standard workload must be agreed upon in advance with your home university and the ISUP secretariat.
- Students from other Danish universities with a course pre-approval (meritstuderende), Non-European Freemovers/fee-paying and Open University/fee-paying (tomplads) can withdraw by writing to email@example.com no later than 2 June 2017. Please note, that reimbursement of tuition fee is not possible after this date unless you can document that your application for at graduate programme at CBS has been rejected. CBS Admissions will send out letters mid-June 2017.
All courses include Preliminary Assignments in class 1.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 workload in ISUP is 206 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.
All courses include Preliminary Assignments that will be announced on the CBS LEARN (Learning Platform) 3 weeks 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.
Primary (must-have) and secondary (nice-to-have) books will be updated in the individual course descriptions on our website. Additional material (cases and articles) and links will be posted on LEARN by the instructor.
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 carry required books 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 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.
What is LEARN?
- Students find course information, preliminary assignments, additional material etc.
- 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 (mid/end-May at the latest)
