As a student, you will become familiar with other cultures in many ways. Through group work, you learn to work in intercultural settings. From professors and guest lecturers, you will learn about their international professional experience. By engaging in student life, you can create an international network.

Programmes with international perspectives

CBS is international in many ways. There are programmes fully taught in English, fully in Danish, and even programmes where you focus on a third language. Regardless of what language you are studying in, you can be sure that your programme will have an international outlook on the topics you learn about.

At MSc in Digital Business, you will look at how digital transformations affect not only a company but also how they affect society on a global level. At HA(jur.), you are taught how globalisation affects the way companies can do business. At BSc Shipping, you are provided with an understanding of the context and strategies of the global shipping industry. At HA(fil.), you learn about how changes in the global market increase the complexities and challenges within a firm.

At CBS, your teaching is based on the newest research. Research is almost always conducted in English which means, you will be working with journals, books and other teaching material in English, even if your programme is taught in Danish.

The international student life

Students from all programmes and backgrounds join one or more than the 100 + different student organisations found at CBS. Engaging in an active student life at CBS is an easy way to increase your international network.

In addition to these, you can also join the International Student Ambassadors (ISA), apply to be a buddy for incoming exchange students or join the exchange crew. If you are looking for an international student life, you will find it at CBS.

And it does not stop there.

Group work is also a central part of being a CBS student. With thousands of international students, you can work with students from all over the world and get practical experience with cross-cultural teamwork. Even in the Danish taught programmes, you will be surrounded with students from the other Nordic countries.

Exchange and international internships

Many students go on exchange. During an exchange semester, you study electives courses at a different university abroad.
