Welcome New Bachelor Students! Responsibility Day 2019


Responsibility Day was launched by the Dean of Education in 2009 and is today one of the biggest annual events held by CBS with more than 2000 participants each year. The event has a duel function in part as an official welcome ceremony for all 1st year undergraduates and in part as an introduction to a case competition with responsibility in business as the main theme. At the event, the students are met by a wide range of stakeholders including teachers, student organisations, CBS senior management, industry leaders, celebrities and many more. The case competition centers around real-life challenges in regards to corporate social responsibility (CSR) within a chosen case company. Case companies from previous years include Hummel, Claus Meyer and the Danish denim brand Yab Yum. 

This year’s Responsibility Day has the theme “How are organizational dilemmas managed responsibly?” and will entail a panel debate with representatives from the Danish industry such as; Grundfos, UN Women, Novo Nordisk, Ørsted and Mærsk. This year’s case evolves around Grundfos’ employee initiative ‘Water2Life’ and how they can responsibly manage their dilemmas. Representatives from the management consulting company, QVARTZ, will guide the students in solving the case. CBS management, together with celebrity speakers, will then talk with the students about what responsibility means at CBS and in a broader spectrum.

The day will then commence at Solbjerg Plads, where lunch will be provided, followed by afternoon sessions where students work on the case and can get assistance from QVARTZ professionals. The following three days the students will then spend solving the case and the top three finalists will compete for the 1st place in The Case Finale on 12th of September. The whole two weeks will then be wrapped up when the winners are announced at The Case Finale, with a party at Nexus!

It is taking place at KB Hallen on the 2nd of September.
Case lounges will be at Solbjerg Plads from the 2nd – 4th of September.
The case finale will be at Solbjerg Plads on the 12th of September.
