We are 62 students who share our experiences about studying at CBS. For example, you can read our best tips. And you can ask us about everything.
At IB you find yourself along students with a high level of ambition and an outstanding dedication towards the studies but also other activities like start-up companies, student jobs, spots etc.
I believe ASP is appealing since it does combine either Japanese or Chinese with business, where you learn about both the Asian economy but also general business theories, models and concepts.
The best about ASP is the diversity and the good atmosphere. We are a relatively small programme. Therefore it was from the beginning easy to get to know each other and create an open and nice feeling amongst us.
Make use of all the organizations that are available at CBS campus. You don’t only make new friends but also learn a lot while doing so.
I found the advanced English language at bit overwhelming at first, but you very quickly get used to it and you learn an enormous amount during those first weeks.
I am really happy to be a student at BLC. I believe the programme allows for an incredible diversity between students with huge differences in culture, subculture and even nationality.
Getting all the way to Copenhagen and starting a new life was a challenge, but I’m glad I made it!
What I really like about BSc SEM is the combination of courses and that you are given proper tools to overcome certain problems, thus I feel that the academic part makes great sense.
The most challenging part of the program would be that you have subjects in both language, economics and culture and it is very rare that you are good in all those different fields.
At the beginning, I was a little worried because I did not know Danish when I started studying at CBS. However, during the first week of school, I realized that everyone speaks English and there were no language barriers.
The most exciting this about BLC is definitely the mix of humanities and social sciences. I was always more inclined towards the humanities in my previous studies, so it was interesting to learn more about social sciences.
The most exciting thing about IM is the broad scope that the programme has and the fact that the research field is still relatively new.
When I met my new peers during the Intro Days I thought: “wow I am among many people who have the same interests”. I guess that is what makes IBP and me a good match.
There is no way of knowing if you have chosen the right programme. Everyone will feel stressed at some point thinking; “maybe this is not right for me”
The programme allows you to try to imagine, take a look at, and work with real life cases to put your learned theories into practice.
For me, the most challenging thing has been the fact that I want to achieve high marks. I haven’t found it hard to pass any subjects, but I have had a harder time achieving top grades than in upper secondary.
The hardest thing for me to overcome when I started at CBS was probably having to rely on other people to understand the entire curriculum. If you manage to do this singlehandedly, I applaud you.
IB was definitely the right programme for me. However, I also believe that there can be more than just one right programme, and as such it might not necessarily have ended up badly if I had chosen otherwise.
The reason why I landed on studying IB was that it was very wide and there are numerous opportunities both during the study and afterwards.
What has surprised me the most about IB is the social life. People are very social, friendly and approachable. There is a willingness to help one another despite the high level of ambition and competitive atmosphere.
There are a lot of opportunities to engage and my experience is that IBP is one of the most social programs at CBS. People are very engaged and different, which means there is room for everyone.
The most exciting, and at the same time also the most challenging part of the programme, is how closely linked to the shipping world the curriculum is.
SEM offers a beautiful mixture of people from all over the world, which helps create an awesome and unique atmosphere.
I found it very freeing and reassuring to suddenly be studying with so many other dedicated young people, which I have sometimes been missing earlier.
One of the best things about IB is that you study together with a very diverse bunch of people, who have done all sorts of things and accomplishments prior or during the programme. This is a great source of motivation.
The most exciting aspect of BLC is definitely the interdisciplinary nature of the program with a combination of economics and social sciences. At the same time, this was also the most challenging part of the program.
The reading burden is a real challenge. The syllabus can be very extensive at times. But then you have to just bite the bullet, pull yourself together and get through it. That's it – there’s no other way.
The most exciting thing about my program I think is the good balance of student life and social life. We have a lot of activities and our study loads are very manageable.
The quality of the professors’ and exercise teachers’ teaching vary from quarters to quarters. However, the bright students in IB can complement the, from time to time, lack of quality.
