Undergraduate courses

At CBS, we are able to offer a wide range of courses to our exchange students. CBS offers many cross-disciplinary courses that are unique in combination, and we are known for offering a bridge to expand the understanding of business within society.

About courses and registration

We've collected the commonly sought bits of information about courses and registration here. If you still need more information, our contact details are in the bottom of the page.

 

1. Course catalog for exchange students
The courses on the tab to the right are open to undergraduate and graduate-level exchange students.

 

2. Course registration for exchange students
All course registrations for exchange students must go through the CBS International Office. Do not contact any program secretariat, professor, or the Electives Secretariat directly. Contact undergrad.intoff@cbs.dk for any inquiries relating to course registration.

 

3. 30 ECTS requirement
Your student visa and/or residence permit is granted upon your status as a full-time student. At CBS, the work load for a full-time student is 30 ECTS. Thus, you are required to register for 30 ECTS. If you do not intent to meet this requirement, you should reconsider your participation in the exchange program at CBS.

 

4. (Pre-approval of) credit transfer
Apply for pre-approval of credit transfer for more courses than you need. Courses might be oversubscribed due to too many applicants or not be established due to too few applicants. Furthermore, course schedules might overlap or you might simply find that a course is not as relevant to your academic focus as you thought. In any case, having to obtain pre-approval for a new course choice could seriously delay your course application process. Therefore, you should apply for pre-approval for at least all your primary and all alternative course choices. Contact your home university for information on how to apply for pre-approval.

 

5. Primary and alternative course choices
In the online registration system, if your first primary choice for some reason is unavailable, we will attempt to register you in your first alternative choice. Thus, your choices work as follows:

  • Primary course 1 -> Alternative course 1
  • Primary course 2 -> Alternative course 2
  • Primary course 3 -> Alternative course 3
  • Primary course 4 -> Alternative course 4

 

6. Overloading
If your home university requires it, you may apply to courses worth a total of 37.5 ECTS. In order to do so, you must request a letter from your home university stating the necessity of overloading. You must then upload this letter to the online registration system.

 

7. Letter of priority
If you’re required to take a specific course to fulfill a requirement at your home university, or if a course is very important to your academic focus, ask your home university to write or sign a letter of priority. Students who upload such a letter to the online registration system will be prioritized for courses which might otherwise be oversubscribed. The letter must state the full code and title of the course(s) in question and why it is vital to you. Note that a letter of priority only carries weight when uploaded to the registration system during initial registration to CBS. After initial registration, seats are predistributed and letters of priority can no longer be accommodated.

 

8. English language proficiency
Unless exempted, you must upload documentation for your English language proficiency. Please read our English proficiency FAQ to find out if you're exempt or what documents are valid.

 

9. Courses with special application
A small number of courses have a special application procedure. This procedure is explained under “Prerequisites” in the course description. You must follow this procedure even when you're an exchange student. If you apply for any such course, you must also apply for it in the online registration system.

 

10. Course registration rounds
There will be more than one chance to register/change courses. We will give you specific information before each of the three registration rounds (see more in "Dates and deadlines").

 

11. Course schedules
Course schedules are unavailable at the time of the first course application round. The various study programs need to know the number of applicants to decide whether a course can or cannot be established. Once decided, the established courses are then scheduled. This process is repeated after the second course registration round (see "Dates and deadline"). Course schedules are usually published in late June (Fall semester) and in mid-to-late December (Spring semester). When published, you'll be able to see them in calendar.cbs.dk.

 

12. Undergraduate-level exchange students
In principle, as undergraduate students have not yet obtained their bachelor’s degree, you do not automatically fulfill that prerequisite for a graduate-level course. However, we understand that sometimes you cannot fulfill your course requirements to your home university with only the courses we offer on undergraduate-level. In this case, we do allow undergraduate students to enroll in one graduate-level elective course (i.e. not a core program course). In order to apply for a graduate-level elective, you need to:

  • E-mail us at grad.intoff@cbs.dk no later than registration deadline (see "Dates and deadlines").
  • To the e-mail, attach a letter from your home university that certifies that you cannot fulfill your course requirements at your home university with only the courses we offer on undergraduate-level.
  • The above letter must state the full course code and title of the course that match the required course at your home university. The courses must match course-for-course. We do not accept blanket requests.
  • You should also attach your most updated transcript. An unofficial one is acceptable as this will most likely include your current courses which will help us assess your eligibility.
  • Finally, you should apply for courses in the online registration flow as instructed because we cannot guarantee a positive reply to your application for a graduate-level elective course.

You will be allowed to take maximum one graduate-level elective course. Of course, you’re welcome to apply for several if you send us a prioritized list. If your first choice is not available, we’ll assess your eligibility against your second choice, etc. We will get back to you with a decision as soon as possible after registration deadline.

 

13. Exam plans
Exam plans are announced September 1 for fall semester and February 1 for spring semester. In general, semester courses will have exams that take place in December (fall semester) or May (spring semester). Q2 courses and Q4 courses will have exams that take place in January (Q2) or June (Q4). Therefore, if the exam format is anything other than "Home assignment - written product", you should expect to stay in or return to Denmark for any exam you might have in January or June.

Undergraduate courses - spring 2019 

You may choose among core program courses and elective courses. More information is available under each section below.

If a program has so indicated, the right-hand information box on the course description shows which quarter the course is offered. If nothing is noted, the course is a semester course. Read more under the "Dates and deadlines" tab, "spring" accordion.

Students are advised against taking more than two quarter-courses in the same quarter, i.e. max. two Q3 courses or max. two Q4 courses.

CBS core program courses available to undergraduate exchange students - spring 2019

Undergraduate exchange students have the great opportunity of enrolling in the below CBS core program courses. Note that the number of seats in these courses are limited.

Furthermore, there might be a risk of schedule overlap if mixing core and elective courses, as scheduling for core and electives courses are administered by different secretariats with no need for coordination since CBS program students are not doing electives when they are in their core courses.
