Encouraging Diversity, Fostering Ambition

We do not look for any specific candidate profile but each year we pride ourselves on building a class of students with diverse backgrounds, whether that is educational, professional, cultural, national, religious and socioeconomic. And we also look for a balance of men and women. Because we know you will get the best results when you are challenged to look at things from the perspectives of others who are different from yourself.

Your motivation and values, however, are just as important as your background, as is your desire to be an active participant in our collaborative learning environment. We want to understand the person behind your academic achievements and experiences, so please tell us about your interests and passions and the goals you have in life.

Selection Procedure

Candidates who possess the necessary qualifications are assessed through a combination of work experience, academics (see below), motivation, recommendations and other factors will be invited for an interview.

A member of our Admissions Committee will conduct the interview via telephone or in-person, although we strongly encourage international candidates to come to Copenhagen for an interview day.

Applicants will be notified via email with their invitation to an interview.
