Massive interest in CBS' graduate programmes

The number of graduate programme applicants has increased by 27 percent compared to last year. According to Rie Snekkerup, Director of the Programme Administration, good job opportunities and exciting programmes are the main reasons behind the increase.


“I’m quite surprised that we’re experiencing such a substantial increase in the number of graduate programme applicants”, says Rie Snekkerup in reaction to this year’s admission figures.

There are 8,216 graduate programme applicants; an increase of 27 percent compared to 2013. Out of the 8,216, 3,741 have been rejected. 4,475 have been accepted into a programme; an increase of 4 percent compared to 2013.

Rie Snekkerup is pleased by the increased number of applicants: “I believe that the increased number of applicants and the fact that 4 out of 5 have CBS as their first priority reflect the notion that CBS offers a strong portfolio of programmes and that young people believe that with a degree from CBS landing a job after graduation is a real possibility.”

“Unfortunately, no one is guaranteed admission into the graduate programme of their dreams. Some of our graduate programmes are incredibly popular, and there’s a risk of rejection even for those with good grades and a relevant bachelor programme background”, says Head of CBS Admissions Office Anne Mette Hou.

The applicants will be notified of their admission status on an ongoing basis until Sunday night. At that time, they are to log on to CBS’ electronic admission system, Admission Flow, where they can find more information on what to do next.
