Accelerating your career

From the very start of your MBA journey, you will benefit from our personalised MBA career service that includes coaching, workshops, company visits and case competitions. It is an individual journey that lets you reflect over your post-MBA goals, your personal strengths and talents, as well as your ideal job situation and past experiences.

If you, like many of our graduates, are interested in staying in Denmark post-MBA, we will match you up with an alumnus who will be your personal career mentor in the third trimester and help you better understand the industry you have chosen. Looking at the last two graduating classes, half of the graduates' post-MBA roles (%) were in Denmark.

Creating value for you

We work with you to help you identify and understand your career goals and help you to achieve your ambitions. We focus on three main areas, illustrated below: Job Search Strategy, Applications and Interviewing. There are interactive workshops in each of these areas and you will benefit from individual coaching sessions to help you market yourself and make the most of your opportunities.

Throughout the year you will experience company visits, welcome guest speakers and attend events – all of which are designed to help you make the right connections. In addition, we will introduce you to our valuable MBA Alumni network, the biggest MBA network in Scandinavia, and you will have numerous opportunities to interact with CBS MBA alumni, both on formal and less formal occasions.
