Legal claim

If you are studying a bachelor degree at CBS, you can find information about legal right of admission to a master's programme. You can also see which master's programme is the natural progression for your bachelor degree.

 

Legal right of admission to a master’s programme at CBS

You have a legal right of admission to a master’s programme at CBS if you apply for the programme that is the natural progression (see below for more information) to your CBS bachelor’s degree the same year as you finish your bachelor’s degree.
 

You will finish your bachelor in 2019

You finished your bachelor’s degree from CBS in 2018

You have a legal right of admission to the master’s programme that is the natural progression to your CBS bachelor’s degree in 2018. 

You still fulfil the specific entry requirements to the master’s programme that is the natural progression to your CBS bachelor’s degree, but you no longer have a legal right of admission to the programme in 2019. 

You must apply for admission to that programme by the correct deadline and follow the application procedure.

We can no longer guarantee you admission to a graduate programme at CBS, as you will be applying for admission on equal terms with the other applicants



Programmes with concentrations

If the master’s programme you have a legal right of admission to has more than one concentration, you are NOT guaranteed a study place at a specific concentration,

The CBS master’s programmes that have several different concentrations are:
 

  • MSc in Economics and Business Administration (EBA) – 14 concentrations (3 in Danish, 11 in English)

  • MSc in Business Language and Culture – 2 concentrations

  • MA in International Business Communication – 2 concentrations 

  • MSc in Business Administration and Information Systems - 2 concentrations

Remember that, if you have legal right of admission to the MSc EBA, you must also fulfil the language requirement for the specific concentration you are applying for (English A or Danish A – depending on your bachelor degree).

Even though you are qualified for all the concentrations at the master’s programme that is the natural progression to your CBS bachelor’s degree, your application will still go through selection at the concentration level, as we expect to have more qualified applicants than we have available study places at most of our concentrations.

Read more about selection criteria under the specific programme concentration page to see how your qualifications match the level of selection criteria.

If we cannot offer you a study place based on the selection criteria for any of the programme concentrations you have applied for, we will contact you and ask you to prioritise the remaining concentrations.

How many programmes can I apply for?
Each applicant is allowed to have three priorities at CBS per application round. If a master’s programme has more than one concentration, then each concentration you select from the Application Portal counts as one application. You will be asked to prioritise your applications if you try to submit more than one.


If you have a legal right of admission to a CBS programme with concentrations, other rules apply to you: 

You can apply for all of the concentrations of that respective programme. In addition to those, you can have two more applications.

How to prioritise your applications

If you fill out more than one application, you must prioritise your applications before you can submit your second application. Make sure to prioritise all your applications carefully, assigning high priority to the programmes or concentrations you are most interested in. If the programme you have a right of admission to has more than one concentration, it is a good idea to apply for as many of those concentrations as possible.

We will process your applications in the order assigned by you and we will always offer you a study place at the highest priority possible.

You cannot change your priorities after the application deadline. Once you have received a study place offer, your remaining lower priorities will be closed and therefore you will not be able to switch to a lower priority programme or concentration.

Your natural progression

Remember, you still must fulfil the language requirement for the programme and are not guaranteed admission to a specific concentration, even if you have legal right of admission to the programme. You can read more about this on the programmes' admission page if you choose to apply to a programme with multiple concentrations, for example MSc EBA.
