More applicants for the master's programmes

A 13 % increase compared to 2011. The increase is primarily owing to more international applicants


6,250 future students have applied for admission to a master's programme at CBS in 2012. That is 728 more applicants and an increase of 13 percent compared to last year.

Two thirds of the increase in the applications are a result of more applicants with an international education, while applicants with an education from CBS or another Danish university represent one third of the increase.

International campus life at Frederiksberg

The international applicants come from 103 different countries. Wilbert van der Meer, Head of Secretariat at the Dean's Office, Education, says that the application increase is a result of a long international effort.

- Both the corporate sector as our primary recruiter and our students attach importance to the fact that we have an international environment right here at Frederiksberg. And with students from so many different cultures and countries, the students are able to practise the way in which they handle global financial and cultural problems as a natural part of their studies - from the very first day. So to speak, we get the best from both worlds: Our Danish students can go abroad to study, and while they are in Denmark, they develop inter-cultural competences surrounded by fellow students from Bremen, Baltimore or Beijing, says Wilbert van der Meer.

New programmes off to a good start

CBS offers three new master´s programmes, which begin in September; The MSc in Bioentrepreneurship, the MSocSc in Public Management & Social Development (in Beijing) and the MA in International Business Communication - Multi-cultural Communication in Organizations. All the programmes have gotten off to a good start with a satisfactory number of applicants.
