Meet Mark H. Moore from Harvard University – the man who coined the term "public value". Find out about the latest trends and research in entrepreneurship at this year's CBS Entrepreneurial Day along with over 4,000 participants. Hear about the challenges and opportunities of the circular economy. These are just a few of the events happening at CBS in September.
A ritual that teaches students to create both value and values, says Gregor Halff, Dean of Education, describing the Responsibility Day ceremony at CBS that will bring together 2,935 new students on their very first day. With the support of the sustainable fashion brand Carcel and EU Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager, new students will be made aware of their social responsibility. HRH The Crown Princess will also attend CBS Responsibility Day.
CBS has appointed Søren Bjerre-Nielsen, who has an impressive career and is best known for his long-standing chairmanship of the Danish Nationalbank, as adjunct professor. Today, he is chairman of the large construction company MT Højgaard, the skylight manufacturing company VELUX and VKR Holding, one of Denmark’s largest industrial companies.
CBS has had a small increase in the number of applicants for its programmes compared to last year. We offer the same amount of study places this year, and it has therefore become a bit more difficult to be accepted to some of the programmes. We look very much forward to seeing all the new students at CBS after the summer holidays.
Every year, new bachelor students at CBS are invited to participate in a series of planned introduction activities. The purpose of these activities is to help students get off to a good start at CBS. Although participation is not mandatory, CBS strongly recommends that all new students make participation a priority.
