Copenhagen Business School
 
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. 

Location

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.

Courses

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 was 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, 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.

 
Housing

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 and November for respective semesters. It 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.

Costs

One of the benefits of participating in a reciprocal exchange is their affordability. Overall costs are comparable to studying in College Station with the main difference in costs coming from travel related expenses and the exchange rate. Please keep in mind that because you are enrolled at A&M, your regular tuition and fees will be paid at A&M just as if you were taking classes on campus. Additionally, students will be provided with the necessary information for them to make arrangements for all other expenses.

Thoughts from a Former Exchange Student

“If you are debating if you should study abroad – do it. This is the absolute best decision I have ever made, and everyone should take advantage of the programs Mays Business School offers. I am very sad to leave, but also very ready to take on the world with all that I have learned about myself.”
 

 Catherine, Mays Reciprocal Exchange Student at Copenhagen Business School
