My choice

Why did I choose CBS?
After a round trip in SouthAmerica I got hooked on the Spanish language and the diversity of the countries. So when I got back to Denmark, I started looking at the different options for studying Spanish. I was very sceptic towards CBS because I had a lot of prejudices about the place and people studying there. However, when I got to the ‘Open Days’ at the university to hear more about Business, Language and Culture (BLC) I thought ”Did someone make this course for me personally?!”  About BLC, I especially like the academic width:

  • I’ve always been ok at a many things, but never super good at something in particular, so I really like that it’s a mix of maths (which I find difficult but interesting), social sciences (which is a personal interest) and language (which turned out to be difficult but very rewarding)·
  • The opportunity of going on exchange.
  • The international environment and diversity of the students.

The CBS type?
I was really nervous for starting at CBS because I had a lot of prejudices about a business school AND the people from the capital. Today I know this was silly of me , because I have a lot in common with people on my course that all love to travel and proved that my prejudices were completely false. The course is so diverse and A LOT of different types study BLC, which I think is one of the best things about this programme.

My programme

What has been the best for me on BLC?

  • The mix of courses at BLC. At BLC you’ll be a generalist, not a specialist. You’ll learn a bit about a lot, which is perfect for me. I really like economics (though I find it really hard) and I loved the social science aspect of both British and American Studies and the Area Studies of South America and Spain.
  • Exchange. My half year in Colombia has been amazing and the best way for me to finally learn the foreign language. It’s such a great opportunities.

What has been the most difficult for me on BLC?

  • Spanish was really difficult for me. I only just studied Spanish a year before starting at BLC, and I was shocked by the academic level of the Spanish classes. I had never imagined how long it would take to read the texts, and it was very often dull and time-consuming because it was so difficult for me. However, now that I have finished my exchange and the area studies I am really satisfied and finally feel confident with my Spanish.
  • Economics. I am from a social science high school, and we learnt nothing about economics (except from a bit of the politics behind), so I was really nervous about starting on a business school. However, a lot of people didn’t either go to a business high school, so the classes start from scratch. Also, maths is not really my strong side, so I have to put a lot of time and effort into the economics classes.

My advice

1
Strengthen your Spanish as much as possible before starting at BLC, it’s going to make your studies so much easier and more enjoyable.

2
Join the FRESH-camp. It’s a really REALLY Danish thing, so it might be a bit of a culture shock, but for me it’s been the best and quickest way of getting to know your fellow students.

3
Join a student organization. Another really good way to meet new people. There are organizations for almost all hobbies and interest. I am really interested in politics, so I even created my own organization with a group of friends that organize big panel debates about political and economic topics. So if you can’t find anything that suits you, I also strongly recommend you to found your own.
