Kicking off the Concentrations virtually: ‘We had some exciting discussions and I could draw on my own experience’

The CBS Campus may be closed, but the online MBA classroom is buzzing with activity. Fifteen new participants made the cut and were accepted for the April intake. It kicked off virtually offering the Concentrations Digitalisation and Governance & Sustainability, both part of the revised and enhanced EMBA.

“Looking at the profiles for this intake, we have succeeded in assembling yet another diverse class where nearly 50% of participants stem from outside of Denmark. Compared to previous years we have seen a slight increase in participants’ seniority,” commented Lone Ryevad Boysen, Admission Manager for the EMBA. “The average participant joined the virtual classroom with just over ten years of managerial experience.”

We are also pleased to report that the participants hail from a wide variety of sectors (please see below pie chart). The pharmaceutical sector is taking the lead, which may be a sign of the times.

Jens Erik Norlander Stein, Head of Powerplant Amagerværket with HOFOR, is one of the participants participating in the Concentration Governance & Sustainability.

“I am amazed at the quality of the experience. The professors are great and very well prepared,” he said upon completing the first Concentration module. “We have had some exciting discussions where I could draw on examples from my own experience and use situations in my organisation. All in all, I am gaining useful insight and I am already in dialogue with upper management about how to implement this.”

Professor Andreas Rasche is the faculty member in charge of the Governance & Sustainability Concentration.

“This course enables participants to plot a path for their company or organisation from a business mindset while weaving in sustainability. And of course, we also help them to identity and exploit the opportunities that their organisation will face as a result of this agenda,” he said.

Despite the lockdown, our admission team is seeing a healthy interest for our September intake and is busy holding virtual meetings, interviews and tests from home. Find out more about how to gain admission and deadlines – next up is 3 June - here or call Lone Ryevad Boysen on +45 3815 6002.
