Young people want to study in English
New and English-taught programmes are very popular among this year’s applicants
4,433 1st priority applications via quota 1. This is the result of this year’s applications for the undergraduate programmes. Compared to 2008, it is a 15 % increase.
It is especially the programmes taught in English that attracts new students – and CBS’ brand new programmes. Almost all English-taught bachelor programmes have experienced an increase in the number of applications.
This is for instance the case of ‘International Business’, International Business and Politics’, ‘Business, Language and Culture’, Business Administration and Service Management’ and BA in Information Management.
The new English-taught bachelor degree in Business Administration and Sociology and the new BA in Intercultural Market Communication, where a foreign language is combined with marketing and communication are top scorers of the year. Both programmes are launched for the first time in 2009.
New competences for the business community
- The business community and society’s demand for competences are changing constantly and the development of new programmes helps meeting those demands. CBS really knows how to create programmes that combine traditional disciplines. We know by experience that new programmes attract a lot of attention, but we still feel very pleased that young people really welcome these new programmes, says Rie Snekkerup, Head of the Programme Administration.
