Copenhagen MBA students

Danish firms will feel the effect of The Copenhagen Full-time MBA making the Financial Times Global MBA ranking. As a result of applying a focused and structured approach to MBA rankings, the programme has managed to enter and keep several international rankings.

“Many potential students make use of the influential rankings during their research,” says CBS MBA Director Poul Hedegaard. “It is often an indicator that signals whether or not the programme is of the right quality and prestige.”

This has a spillover effect on applicants, implying that the programme has the potential to attract higher caliber students. The percentage students from the US alone has risen from 11 to 23% in the past year. Take into account that 60-80% of a class tend to stay on and find a position in Denmark post-graduation, this should have a positive effect on the Danish work force.

“The more qualified students we attract, the more Danish firms will feel the effects. Organisations will have access to international talent that would have otherwise been out of reach.”
