Part of this collaboration involves holding the annual UBC-CBS Challenge.
The competition runs for two weeks. During those two weeks, students visit several Danish companies, such as JMW Consulting and Öresund Committee, where they work hard on a specific challenge the companies face.

In 2013, one of the challenges also involved the Öresund Committee, which presented a task concerning the optimisation of cultural integration between the regions that targeted commuters between Denmark and Sweden. The students were given the challenge of solving issues related to launching an app.

Several companies have provided challenges just like this one, which require the students to work hard to prove themselves worthy of winning. The students will present their solutions to a panel of judges on Friday 29 February 2014, of course under the watchful eye of the companies involved and fellow CBS students.
