Copenhagen Business School
Fall Semester
Copenhagen, Denmark

Copenhagen Business School (CBS) was established in 1917 and today hosts over 19,000 students. The campus is located in Frederiksberg District, a bustling municipality of the Denmark Capital City Region. CBS is one of the first universities in Denmark to encourage students to take part in extracurricular activities. Because of this, they have the most student-run organizations in all of Denmark. Every year CBS welcomes over 1,200 exchange students from around the world. It presence in the financial markets globally and as the capital of Demark make it a desirable location to study abroad, so you are sure to meet plenty of other students on exchange.

Copenhagen is the capital of Denmark as well as its most populous city. With ties all the way back to the Vikings, Copenhagen boasts a wealth of culture and history. It is the center of economics, government and culture of Denmark. It houses one of the major financial centers with the Copenhagen Stock Exchange. In a ranking of the richest cities, Copenhagen placed third in terms of gross earnings. The city is sprawling with an abundance of bridges connecting the waterfronts, historic district, museums, and parks. It is known for being bicycle friendly so getting around is easy exploring the city and what it has to offer! This fits right into their plan to become carbon-neutral by 2025.

The vast majority of courses at CBA are taught in English or Danish. All courses listed in the course catalog are taught in English. Students are permitted to take courses in Danish if they are capable of following. A full workload is 30 hours and CBA requires that all exchange students take a full workload, regardless of whether credit may be obtained at the home university. There is no guarantee of enrollment in required courses as enrollment is subject to completion of prerequisites, class availability, and size. Please indicate alternative choices when you register online. Be sure to read up on information about the academic experience and environment of Danish universities. Also, check out this video on what it is like to study in Denmark.

CBA has a Buddy Program if you so choose to participate. It is a wonderful way to get connected and involved! Mandatory Introduction Week is held at CBS for exchange students the week before school starts. It is a brilliant way to get familiar with all the facilities and network before school has even begun. It will include a review of courses and exams, Danish culture, IT and library resources, a campus tour, and present an optional culture program. If you are unable to attend due to exams from your home university still going on, a note must be written to your academic advisor and CBS may proctor your exam at CBS instead of missing Introduction Week. In addition to the Introduction Week there is a Danish Crash Course Week/Danish Culture Week prior to the beginning of classes. It is for your enjoyment and education. Be sure to look up how attending that will affect your arrival date, most likely you will need to come sooner. During the semester a language course in Danish is offered.


Exchange students do have access to on-campus housing. Copenhagen Business School has nine student residences or dorms that are fully furnished and include internet access. Applications for housing are available on-line. Deadlines are around the beginning of June. Housing is given on a first-come first-serve basis. Do note that CBS cannot guarantee housing for all exchange students. Rates per dorm vary. CBS estimates living expenses to be from $900-1,090 a month (rent, on campus dining, etc.). Housing off campus is an option, but in Copenhagen it is difficult to find and often expensive if you do.

Thoughts from a Former Exchange Student

"I decided to study abroad as a means of diversifying my professional skills, not to mention my career opportunities. Studying abroad is one of the best ways to broaden one's awareness of the complex issues surrounding this new international/global era in which we live. It helped me perfect my language skills and gain knowledge of the political, social, and economic issues the world faces today. Furthermore, I believe the personal experiences I gained will help me to be a better leader to welcome challenges, and to challenge the status quo."
