Studying at CBS

Studying at Copenhagen Business School
You will embark on a unique and comprehensive learning experience for yourself. The high standards for quality education at CBS guarantee that each degree programme and course have clear learning goals and that our courses’ follow the newest international knowledge within each discipline. CBS also invest to its teaching staff by emphasizing the academic and pedagogical competences of it.

The administration and campus facilities are built to support our students’ learning and personal development. CBS provides services to all our degree students regardless of nationality, so our international students have the same resources available to them as the Danish students.

You can choose the academic environment that suits you!
At CBS, academic specialisation is part of the degree programme from the very first day you are here. You will be part of an academic environment, which dedicated researchers, teachers and students have developed.

Every environment has its own special business aim and its own way of integrating the different subjects. Within the framework of the individual degree programmes, you will also have different options – electives, project topics and exchange programmes – but the framework is the academic environment, which the degree programme defines and develops.

At CBS bachelor or master level, we regard this as an opportunity to offer a coherent identity and a creative community, without giving up the advantages of being a large institution with many opportunities.

Teaching based on research, cooperation and active participation
The teaching at CBS is research-based, which means that you will meet many researchers when they are teaching, but it also means that you will learn, how to use the research methods in your work. A lot of teaching is based on the students’ cooperation in groups. The students help each other in the learning process, and they learn to cooperate.

Above all, it is important that the students are stimulated to participate actively during classes. In this way, it will be easier to remember new knowledge and to make it part of their/the students' own world of ideas and readiness to act. Copenhagen Business School is a university, and the teaching communicates a theoretically based understanding of the world.

Nevertheless, business economics and the business language are practical disciplines. Therefore, examples and material from the practical world are part of everyday teaching. CBS’ former students, our research contacts and corporate partners are important parts of the degree programmes’ academic dimension.
