Copenhagen Business School Joins the European MBA Consortium

Copenhagen, Denmark (3 October 2005) - Copenhagen Business School is a new partner school in the European MBA consortium. Founded in 2002 by Mannheim Business School in Germany, Warwick Business School in Britain and ESSEC in France, the European MBA Program is an innovative concept. During the 12-month study, participants rotate among three campuses located in three countries, enjoying a rare chance to experience different campus environments within a short period of time.

"The European MBA Program offers participants a European view on global business. It has proven to be an excellent stepping-stone for future managers and executives from around the world. As part of the internationalization strategy of CBS, the European MBA Program expands our partnerships with some of the leading business schools in Europe. It offers an attractive option for our participants. We are very pleased to include this in our portfolio of program offerings," says Professor Christer Karlsson, Dean CBS Executive.

In the pilot phase, CBS welcomes five participants from Mannheim in the current academic year while participants in the full-time MBA at CBS will have the opportunity to partake in a number of courses in Mannheim.  "Starting in 2006, European MBA participants at CBS will spend two of their study terms at the partner schools under this partnership," remarks Karlsson.

Copenhagen Business School is one of the largest business schools in Northern Europe and has an enrolment of 15,000 students. Internationally-oriented, CBS mantains close partnership with the business community and has exchange agreements with more than 280 universities in the world. At the cutting-edge of life-long learning and leadership development for executives and professionals, CBS Executive is the unit at Copenhagen Business School that offers full-time MBA, Executive MBA as well as executive master's programs in public administration, corporate communications, health management and management development.
