Through Corporate Partnerships, CBS wishes to establish close ties to a select group of corporations.

Corporate Partners gain access to researchers and to the latest results of Danish and international research. Furthermore, corporations have the opportunity to cooperate on new, cutting-edge corporate research projects.

As a Corporate Partner, corporations have the chance to get really close to the students through, for example, company presentations, trainee programs, assignments for the company, recruitment activities, and company-based case studies involving close collaboration with students and teachers.

When corporations are recruiting internationally for their subsidiaries and affiliates in other parts of Europe and overseas, CBS will be able to assist through its contacts to the fifty or more leading business schools that it works with worldwide.

In addition:

  • A Corporate Partnership means that an auditorium, or another facility at the school, will be named after the company.

  • Corporate Partners will be invited to CBS CELL executive seminars, workshops, and lectures and other activities involving visiting professors.

  • Corporate Partners are entitled to use the library and library services at CBS, including research literature updates.
