A) Fulfil the language requirement by the application deadline
B) Fulfil the specific entry requirements below

The programme has a limited number of places. If there are more qualified applicants than places available at a programme, there will be a selection process, according to the selection criteria below.

English language requirement

The programme requires English at Danish level A.

The English requirements are very strict, which means that only the qualifications listed on the English level A page are accepted as alternative fulfilment.

The English language requirement must be fulfilled by the application deadline.

Specific Entry Requirements

This is a concentration under the MSc in Economics and Business Administration (EBA)/cand.merc. programme. MSc EBA/cand.merc. has 14 concentrations, each with a limited number of places.

Advance assessments

The following advance assessments are valid for the 2020 admission round for applicants whose bachelor degree exactly matches the university, degree title and enrolment year listed.

The advance assessments are based on the obligatory courses as listed in the programme regulations. If you have obligatory courses that have been credit transferred from elsewhere, we will not use the advance assessment and will instead assess your courses using the available documentation.

The advance assessments are grouped accordingly:

·       Qualifying Bachelor Degrees:
Your obligatory courses fulfil the specific entry requirements

·       Potentially Qualifying Bachelor Degrees:
Your obligatory courses do not fully cover the specific entry requirements. You will therefore need to either choose relevant electives or take supplementary qualifying courses to fulfil the requirements.

·       Non-qualifying Bachelor Degrees: 
Your obligatory courses do not fulfil the specific entry requirements and it is unlikely that elective courses and/or taking supplementary qualifying courses will help you to fulfil the requirements in full.

Your bachelor degree could be placed in different categories for different enrolment years.

Fulfilment of the entry requirements does not guarantee admission. Read more under ‘Selection Criteria’.

Selection Criteria

This is a concentration under the MSc in Economics & Business Administration (MSc EBA / cand.merc.) There are a limited number of places available at each concentration and while entry requirements for the programme are the same, the selection criteria are unique to each one.

You are not guaranteed a place at an individual concentration, even if you fulfill all the entry requirements for the programme.

Selection criteria are applied if there are more qualified applicants than places. Qualified applicants who are not accepted at the concentration will be taken into consideration at lower priorities.

Remember to upload the correct documentation, as this can improve your chances of being accepted – for more details see documentation.

The selection process at the MSc EBA concentration Finance and Investments is based on an overall assessment of applicants’ educational background at undergraduate level, with a focus on courses and grades within business administration and economics; grades within the academic areas constituting the specific entry requirements are of particular importance.

Courses and grades within finance, quantitative methods (including statistics and econometrics) and accounting may also be taken into consideration.

 

I have a legal claim to MSc EBA.

If you have a legal claim to the MSc in EBA, you are not guaranteed admission to a particular concentration of the programme. You will also undergo selection according to the selection criteria above.

You have a legal claim to be accepted at MSc EBA (but NOT at a specific concentration), if:

a) MSc EBA is the natural progression for your bachelor degree (see Admission for CBS bachelor degrees), AND
b) your bachelor degree is from CBS, AND
c) you apply for the MSc EBA within 3 years of finishing your bachelor’s degree

Read more about legal claim

If you are not eligible for a place based on the selection criteria for any of the concentrations you have chosen, you will be contacted with a view to prioritising the remaining MSc EBA concentrations.

Your connection to the Danish labour market will be taken into consideration as part of the selection process. In your application, you will be asked to write a paragraph of no more than 1000 characters (including spaces), describing your current circumstances and reflecting on your future career opportunities in Denmark.
