CBS in August


It is summer, and many are on vacation, but CBS is still open. CBS participates in Copenhagen Pride 2017 for the first time. Different events will also be held including a discussion about whether spoken language is sloppy and a conference on how banks should manage assets.


CBS joins Copenhagen Pride 2017

Saturday 19 August, 12:00 – 16:00
The Pride parade will start from Frederiksberg Town Hall


CBS will take part in Copenhagen Pride 2017 for the first time - a Human Rights festival focused on LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) issues. We participate with the motto ”love suits everyone”. With this motto, we want to signal that love has no limits and challenge the stereotype of the suit-wearing CBS student.

Everyone can participate, it is free, and registration is not necessary.

Conference on financial institutions: banking and asset management

Thursday 17 August, 09:00 – Friday 18 August, 15:00

Top researchers from e.g. Colombia Business School, University of California, Berkley and Stanford University will present their research. The conference is held in collaboration with the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR), the Center for Financial Frictions (FRIC) and the ERC project FRICTIONS at the Department of Finance.

The conference language is English. Register no later than 7 August.

Symposium focuses on pronunciation habits in Danish and other Nordic languages

Thursday 24 August, 08:00 – Friday 25 August, 18:00

Spoken language is filled with weaknesses, adjustments and contractions of words. Some people perceive these pronunciation habits as sloppy. With the currently available data on spoken language, it is possible to examine pronunciation habits and pronunciation variations from countless technical and linguistic angles. What are the tendencies? And where are we going? This is the focus of the symposium SJUSK 2017.

The final programme for the days is still being prepared. The symposium will be held in Danish.

Were you not accepted to a bachelor programme this year?

Tuesday 8 August and Thursday 10 August, 16:15
Solbjerg Plads 3, 2000 Frederiksberg (SPs14)

If you did not receive the answer to your bachelor application which you had hoped for, you now have the opportunity to meet CBS’ Admissions Office and Student Guidance Service. Here you can get answers to your questions regarding what it takes to be admitted into a programme, what a good motivational essay looks like, what you do next, etc.  

This event will take place twice.
