Entry requirements

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

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 to a sufficient extent.

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

 

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).

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. There are three sets of selection criteria. Your exact academic background determines which set of selection criteria will be applied for you and therefore which of the following three quotas you belong to:

Quotas for selection

Quota 1: Applicants with a bachelor degree within social science (see below):
If you have a bachelor degree within social science, you are subject to an overall assessment of your academic background at undergraduate level with a focus on:

  • 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

Quota 2: Applicants with a bachelor degree NOT within social science (see below):
If your bachelor degree is not within social science, you are subject to an overall assessment of your academic background at undergraduate level with a focus on:

  • 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 

Quota 3: Dispensees:
If you do not have a bachelor degree, you are considered a dispensee and will be subject to an individual assessment. As a HD part II you are considered a dispensee. Read more about dispensees higher up on this page.

The following Danish degrees are within the social sciences:

  • Bachelor degrees within business administration: BSc in Business Administration & Service Management; BSc in International Business; BSc in Business Administration; HA - regardless of specialisation.
  • Bachelor degrees within business administration combined with another field: BSc in International Business and Politics; BSc in Business Administration and Sociology; BSc in Business, Language and Culture (also known as SPRØK or Negot); BA int. (also known as SPRØK); BSc in Business, Asian Language & Culture (also known as ASP); BA soc. with business administration; HA(mat.); HA(dat.); HA(it.); HA(jur.) - regardless of specialisation; HA(fil.); HA(psyk.); HA(kom.); HA(int.) (also known as HA og 1 fremmedsprog
  • Bachelor degree in Økonomi (Economics); Jura (Law); Sociologi (Sociology); Samfundsfag (Social Science); Socialvidenskab (Social Science); Statskundskab (Political Science); Offentlig administration (Public Administration); Forvaltning (Public Administration); Politik og administration (Politics and Administration); Antropologi (Anthropology); Internationale udviklingsstudier (International Development Studies); Miljøplanlægning (Environmental Planning); Psykologi (Psychology); Uddannelsesvidenskab (Education Science); European Studies; Global Studies; Sundhedsfremme og sundhedsstrategier (Health Promotion and Health Strategies); Virksomhedsstudier (Business Studies); Arbejdslivsstudier (Working Life Studies). NB: if your bachelor degree is from RUC, your two-year basic studies must be within the social sciences.

If you have a non-Danish degree, CBS Admissions will, based on the above, evaluate if your degree is within the social sciences. It is not important whether you obtain a "BA" or "BSc" degree, as long as your degree is equivalent to one of the areas listed above.

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. You should think about questions such as:

  • 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
  • Where do I want to be in two years’ time

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 process will consider whether or not you have a Danish Master’s degree. Applicants with a completed Danish Master’s degree are only allowed to enrol in a new degree programme in certain circumstances (See “rules and exemptions” under "Your application"), and already having a Master's degree can be a disadvantage, even if you are one of the exceptions to the rule.

Standard Assessments

The following standard assessments will be used for the 2018 admission year.

In case of a credit transfer of obligatory courses, we reserve the right not to use the standard assessment.

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