Cand.merc.(pol.) / MSc in International business and politics

The 3 stages of admission

Entry requirements

You are qualified for (but not guaranteed) admission to the programme if you:

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

The programme has a limited number of places. If there are more qualified applicants than places available at a programme, there will be a selection process, according to the selection criteria below. In other words, fulfilment of the entry requirements does not guarantee admission.

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.

The English language requirement must be fulfilled by the application deadline.

Specific Entry Requirements

The MSc in International Business and Politics  is the natural progression for the BSc in International Business and Politics from CBS and the BSc in Business Administration and Sociology from CBS.

Applicants who do not have one of the above-mentioned bachelor degrees can also be qualified for the programme, if they have an equivalent academic background, which covers the academic areas listed below in full and as prescribed. Your educational background will be subject to an overall individual assessment in order to establish whether your bachelor's degree qualifies you for the programme and the following specific entry requirements are met: 

15 ECTS-points in Economics

Including

  • min. 5 ECTS-points within Microeconomics, as well as
  • min. 5 ECTS-points within Macroeconomics

15 ECTS-points in Business Administration

CBS Admissions is not able to pre-assess your qualifications ahead of the application round.

To help you to prepare your application, you have the following two options:

  • Check below if we have already published an advance assessment for your bachelor degree
  • If your bachelor degree is not listed in the advance assessments below, you can make your own self-assessment using the self-assessment (course match) form further down

Advance Assessments

The following advance assessments are valid for the 2023 admission round for applicants whose bachelor degree exactly matches the university, degree title and enrolment year listed.

The advance assessments are based on the obligatory courses as listed in the programme regulations. If you have obligatory courses that have been credit transferred from elsewhere, we will not use the advance assessment and will instead assess your courses using the available documentation.

The advance assessments are grouped accordingly:

·       Qualifying Bachelor Degrees:
Your obligatory courses fulfil the specific entry requirements

·       Potentially Qualifying Bachelor Degrees:
Your obligatory courses do not fully cover the specific entry requirements. You will therefore need to either choose relevant electives or take supplementary qualifying courses to fulfil the requirements.

·       Non-qualifying Bachelor Degrees: 
Your obligatory courses do not fulfil the specific entry requirements and it is unlikely that elective courses and/or taking supplementary qualifying courses will help you to fulfil the requirements in full.

Your bachelor degree could be placed in different categories for different enrolment years.

Fulfilment of the entry requirements does not guarantee admission. Read more under ‘Selection Criteria’.
