Welcome to CBS

Welcome to all 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 during the day on 10 June. 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 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 > Answer to your application.

If you have not received any answers by the end of 10 June, you are welcome to contact us. 


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, Optaget

Afgjort, Betinget optagelse tilbudt

Read more about how to accept your offer and possible answers on cbs.dk under Graduate > Admission > Answer to your application


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

If you are conditionally accepted e.g., if you still need to pass a course in your bachelor's degree, you must meet these requirements before 31 August 2024. If you fail to do so, your admission could be annulled. 

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

You need a CBS user profiler to access all digital systems and platforms at CBS. Your CBS user profile is strictly personal, and you should never share this information with others.

Your user profile consists of a username and a password. Your user profile will give you access to CBS´s digital platforms, for example your CBS mail, your timetable and my.cbs.dk - your student intranet:

  • New student at 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 in the Application Portal. 
  • Current student at CBS: Use your current username and password.
  • Student at CBS with-in the last 6 months: If you have taken single courses, Summer University courses, diploma or executive programmes at CBS within the last 6 months, your CBS username and password are still active and you should use these.

Forgot your username and password? 
If you cannot remember your login credentials, please contact the IT Support on help@student.cbs.dk


Most study programmes at CBS start with introduction 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 28 and 30 August (week 35). 

Read more about introduction activities for your study programme and when it start 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 have to 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 12 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 about our answer to your application, please send an email to CBS Admissions at: graduateadmission@cbs.dk
