Good wages and competent course participants
CBS is ranked on the basis of the Full-time MBA, the Executive MBA (EMBA) and CBS’ international MSc programmes in economics and business administration. The major leap forward is owing to the fact that CBS reappeared in the global Executive MBA ranking and that CBS entered the MBA ranking for the first time this year.

Executive MBA (EMBA) is performing well this year, primarily because the income of the course participants has increased by 57%. The participants are also scoring well on the basis of their job experience, which means that the classes consist of extremely skilled people.
