CBS is monitoring the situation in Asia and elsewhere closely. The safety of our students is our top priority. We fully understand that our students and their relatives may be worried about the possibility that the coronavirus may influence their current or future exchange semester.
In situations like this, CBS always follows the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ travel guidelines, and updates from the Danish Health Authorities. Additionally, CBS is in close contact and dialogue with our trusted partner institutions in the affected areas.

Students are at all times encouraged to follow the advice, travel information and any travel restrictions from the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Danish Health Authorities, local health authorities and partner institution guidelines.

Currently (12 February 2020), only exchange at Chinese universities is affected and paused by the coronavirus.

Students in the International Business Asia programme are offered an alternative spring semester at the campus in Frederiksberg and not in Beijing, expected to start on 1 March 2020. The International Office will do its utmost to accommodate the opportunity for a later exchange semester in China for those interested.
