A) Fulfil the entry requirements below
B) Fulfil the language requirement
C) Have a bachelor degree (or will by study start)

Specific Entry Requirements

Your educational background will be subject to an overall individual assessment in order to establish if the academic areas listed below are covered.

The specific entry requirements are min. 30 ECTS-points within one or more of the following areas:

  • Organisation (incl. organisational learning and networks; organisational behaviour; organisational change; organisational structure and design; organisational theory)
  • Management (incl. human resource management; leadership; public management; intercultural management; change management; knowledge management)

  • Innovation and entrepreneurship (incl. user innovation; dynamics of creativity; firm formation; social entrepreneurship)
  • Marketing (incl. design and brand studies)
  • Courses related to the creative industries and creative activities in other organisations*

*This requirement includes courses related to the creative industries that also have a business/management element or angle. For example: arts management, sports economics, cultural entrepreneurship and the like. Pure creative courses such as dance, art history, etc. will not be included.

English language requirement

The programme requires English at Danish level A.

The English requirements are very strict, which means that only the qualifications listed on the English level A page are accepted as alternative fulfilment.

If you do not fulfil the English requirements at the time of applying, you have until study start to document fulfilment. In other words, you are welcome to apply without fulfilling the English requirement, but you must fulfil the requirements as listed on the English level A page before study start (or 1 June if you are a non-EU citizen and need a student residence permit). If you need to take a language test/exam, your scores must be available to CBS Admissions by this time, however, you must upload a registration for the language test/exam when you apply.

Selection Criteria

The programme has a limited number of places.

Only applicants fulfilling the specific entry requirements are considered qualified and will be considered in the selection process. If there are more qualified applicants than places available, selection criteria will be applied. 

To determine which of the remaining qualified applicants receive an offer of admission, an overall assessment of their academic background at undergraduate level will take place. 

The following factors are of importance: 

  • Relevance of educational background at undergraduate level, including general grade level and course content
  • Coverage of all academic areas of the specific entry requirements
  • Motivation given in motivational essay
  • Analytical skills and experience with social science methodology 
  • Academic problem-oriented project work 

 

Motivational essay

A motivational essay must be personal and specific, and it must prove that you are well informed and that you have put a lot of thought into your choice of education. It should also explain the purpose and the motivation of you choosing this particular degree. Please consider the following when writing your motivational essay:

  • What is my motivation for choosing the programme
  • Why do I think my bachelor degree is relevant to the programme
  • What can I contribute to the programme and my fellow students
  • Your future plans – your intended academic or professional path
  • Your motivation for studying in Denmark, familiarity with Danish society and affiliation to the Danish labour market

Your educational background is the most important factor, however, your life and work experience may also be considered in the selection process through the motivational essay, if relevant. Your motivational essay must not exceed two A4 pages and be written in English. Please note that the motivational essay is only used in the selection process and not in connection to the entry requirements.

Do you already have a master's degree?
Part of the selection criteria is whether or not you already have a Danish Master’s degree. A completed Master's degree can be a disadavantage in the overall assessment. If you have a completed Master's degree from a country other than Denmark, this does not apply to you.

Note that applicants with a completed Danish Master's degree can only enrol in a new degree programme in certain circumstances (see the rules under "Previous studies at Master's level") and even if you are an exception to the rule, this can be disadvantageous.

Advance Assessments

The following advance assessments will be used for the 2020 admission year. Depending on the changes in the specific entry requirements the advanced assessments might change for the admission year 2020 and onwards. 

Please note that our advance assessments only take into account the obligatory courses included in the standard curricula (programme regulations) of the bachelor degrees listed below; i.e. if you take electives/supplementary courses so as to cover one or more of the required areas, the requirements will be lowered accordingly. In case of a credit transfer of obligatory courses, we reserve the right not to use the  advance assessment.

If your exact university and degree and enrolment year are not stated, you will be assessed according to the programme’s entry requirements.

Fulfillment of the entry requirements does not guarantee admission at the programme.
