Welcome to CBS

Welcome to new graduate students at CBS. Here is what you need to know right now.

Within the next few days, you will know whether you have been accepted to a graduate programme at CBS. Unfortunately CBS has had to reject many applicants, as we receive far more applications than we offer study places.

If you have been rejected, we recommend that you read the article ”Rejected?”


Our answer will be uploaded to your application in the Application Portal. You will receive an email as soon as it has been uploaded. 

CBS Admissions uploads responses to applications continuously. You will therefore not necessarily receive an answer to all of your applications at the same time, and your friends could receive an answer before you do. 

As soon as all answers have been uploaded, we will inform you via cbs.dk under Graduate > Admission > After you have replied. If all the answers have been uploaded and you have not received any answers, you are welcome to contact us. Until then you have to be patient.



If you are one of the lucky applicants who have been accepted to CBS, you must remember to accept the offer for a study place no later than five days after you have received your answer. 

You do this in your application in the Application Portal.

You will receive a confirmation, and you will also see that your application status has changed from:


Status: When offered a study place:

Status: When you have accepted:


Afgjort, Optagelse tilbudt

Afgjort, Betinget optagelse tilbudt

Read more about how to accept and possible answers on cbs.dk under Graduate > Admission > After you have applied


Please make note of whether your admission is full or conditional. 

If you are conditionally accepted, e.g. you still need to pass a course in your bachelor, you must meet these requirements before 31 August 2022. If you fail to do so, your admission could be annulled. 

Please make sure that you have read and fully understand how and when to fulfil the conditions stated in your letter. 

Read more about conditional admission and what to do under The admission letter on cbs.dk under Graduate > Admission > After you have applied


You need a CBS user profiler to access all CBS IT systems and platforms. 

Your user profile consists of a username and a password. Your user profile will give you access to e.g. your CBS mail, your timetable and my.cbs.dk, your student intranet. 

  • New to CBS: at the beginning of July, you will receive an email with information about your CBS profile and how to activate it. The email will be sent to the email address you have stated on the Application Portal. 
  • Current or former student at CBS: you must use your current username and password. You are also a former student if you have taken single courses, diploma, executive programmes or have been conditionally accepted to CBS before.  If you cannot remember your logon credentials, please contact the IT Support on studenthelpdesk.it@cbs.dk


Most study programmes at CBS start with orientation activities. They are not mandatory, however, we do recommend that you participate as they will give you a good academic and social introduction to your new programme.

The introductory activities are held over a couple of days between 22 August and 2 September (week 34 and 35). 

Read more about orientation activities for your study programme and when it starts on my.cbs.dk at the beginning of July.


Whether you are continuing your bachelor degree’s natural progression or are coming from another university, you must apply for education grants (SU). 

You apply for SU at MinSU on www.su.dk   

When can you apply?

If you take up a graduate programme immediately after the completion of your bachelor studies, you can apply for SU from 13 June, however, no sooner than two days after you accept your study place at CBS.

 Processing time can be up to 4 weeks, and your SU will not be disbursed until the middle of July or beginning of August. 

If you do not take up a master programme immediately after the completion of your bachelor studies, you can apply for SU from September and apply one month before you are eligible to receive SU. That means the first day you can apply for SU is 1 August.


Educational Grant (SU) - International Student?

If you are a foreign citizen, there are certain conditions you have to meet. You must also follow a special application process before you can receive any SU.

Read more about SU on my.cbs.dk > Student life > SU > Apply for SU – foreign citizen.

Please note that processing time may take longer during summer months due to a large number of applications.


If you have any questions for our answer to your application, please send an email to CBS Admissions on graduateadmission@cbs.dk. In the subject line, write: ”My Application” + your application ID

We will get back to you as soon as possible, but we do receive many questions within a very short period of time, so we kindly ask you to be patient. 

You are also welcome to give us a call on:

  • +45 3815 2764
  • Friday 10 June and Monday 13 June at 10.00 - 15.00

Please note however, we can only comment on your specific application or make any decisions if you write an email to Graduate Admission on graduateadmission@cbs.dk.

Welcome to CBS

Once again, welcome to CBS – we hope that you will have two great and educational years with us!
