Meet Thomas, a student from BSc in Business Administration and Digital Management

Why did I choose my programme?
I have always had a great interest in economics, business, and IT. I found this program and have since then always wanted to go here. For me it was the perfect place, having a program learning about all of my interests and also being an international program where I meet and get to know a lot of ambitious students. The program is so new therefore the teachers seems motivated and it makes going to class fun.

What do I like the best?
I think one of the best things about the program is its courses. The courses are well integrated into each other, and you work a lot with other students. Many of the courses can be challenging which makes them even more fun. Another great feature of the program is that there is just pass/fail in the first semester. This gave me the chance to find how I like to study, and how I learn the best without having the pressure of grades.

What do I think is difficult?
Being not so confident in my English skills and need to learn how to study in an English international program.

What would I have liked to have known before starting my programme?
How nice everyone is. Don’t be afraid to talk with and get to know your classmates. As digital management is one of the programs with most international students, everyone is open and friendly. In this program, you work a lot with student groups, and it's always great to find a group you can work well with.

It would also have been great to learn what to read and how to read. The first semester consisted of a lot of theoretical classes where there were a lot of readings. Learning how to read and what you need to go over is important and can save you a lot of time.

What do I want to do after finishing my programme?
After finishing my programme I want to look into the different master's programs at CBS.

If I could give myself a piece of advice, before starting it would be..
1. You don’t need to go to every class and do all of the reading the teacher gives you.
2. Don't focus all on school, you must have fun and do things that make you happy, this will also provide you with energy to do school when needed.
3. Use all the resources CBS provides to you as a student.
