Among a record high number of applicants, 15 top students from the undergraduate International Business programme at CBS have been chosen to join this year’s Globe programme.

Globe – Global Learning Opportunities in Business Education – is a cooperation between Copenhagen Business School, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, and the Kenan-Flagler Business School at the University of North Carolina.

EU as a focus area 

Each year, a total of 45 students – 15 from each university – comprise a global class which spends one semester at each university studying the specific business aspects of the continent in which they live. - While in Denmark, GLOBE students will focus on the integration of the European business environment and how it has affected corporations within different industrial sectors, states Programme Director for Globe at CBS, Martin Iversen.

On your “own two feet” in Denmark

During their stay at CBS, the students from Hong Kong and from the USA will experience that learning in Denmark depends highly upon your own motivation to make an effort to participate.- Unlike in Hong Kong and in the USA, no one will take you by the hand to make sure you do your work or show up for class. It takes self-discipline, but the result is impressive. It produces independent students who are able to make decisions for themselves, says former Globe student, Louise Søndergaard.
