Again this year, CBS has received more applications than we have study places available, for which reason we have had to reject a lot of applicants. Should you have been rejected, you can read more about what you can do next.

As before, CBS have received far more applications than we have study places available. For this reason, we have had to reject many applicants. 

If you have been rejected, it is probably because: 

  • there are more qualified applicants than available study places
  • you do not meet the academic entry requirements for the particular study programme
  • you have not submitted adequate documentation in time

You can read more about the reasons for rejection and what you can do next on under Graduate > Admission > Answer to your application


Unfortunately, you cannot apply for admission to any vacant study places this year. We do not have any places available, for which reason we do not offer a late application round in August. It is not possible to switch to another programme either.


If you have any questions regarding our answer to your application, please send an email to CBS Admissions on

We will get back to you as soon as possible, but we do receive many questions within a very short period of time, so we kindly ask you to be patient.

You are also welcome to call us:

  • Phone +45 3815 2764
  • Monday 10 June at 10.00-15.00 CET
  • Tuesday 11 June at 10.00-15.00 CET

Please note, that we are only able to comment on your specific application or make decisions if you write an e-mail to CBS Admission via 



It is frustrating to be rejected and not get in to the programme you applied for. If you have a plan B, it might help you see other possibilities.  

Consider whether you want to: 

  • apply to another university this year: Check the websites of other universities to see if they have a late application round. 
  • apply to CBS again next year: First of all you have to make sure you fulfil the entry requirements. Read more at Are you qualified? Please note, that fulfiling the entry requirements are no garantee for getting accepted to one of our graduate programmes. Read more and find out if you can improve your chance at Improving your chances

You are also welcome to send us an email and ask why you were not admitted. However, in many cases it is difficult to give an exact answer, as your application is benchmarked against the other applications, and it is impossible to predict how the applications will look next year.

Other options for studying at CBS 

CBS offers many different programmes and courses. This means, you also have other options for studying at CBS. 

Please note that our other programmes will not improve your chances of getting accepted to one of our graduate programmes later on. Instead, you should see the other programmes as an alternative to studying a graduate programme. In most cases, you will also need to pay tuition fee.  

At CBS you can also study:
