Exchange students at CBS have access to a large number of courses taught in English.  CBS differs from other business schools around the world by offering a comprehensive approach to project group work and teamwork. Students are empowered and encouraged to develop their communication skills through open classroom debates, etc.  Aside from traditional business classes, coursework is also offered in economics, culture, communication, politics and law.

Areas of Study

Accounting, communication, economics, entrepreneurship, finance, international business, law, management, marketing, political science, social entrepreneurship and statistics.


The CBS housing department has access to nine student residence halls in different areas of the city, with priority given to international exchange and other students who are in Copenhagen for a short period of time.  Rooms in the residence halls are either single or double. There are also smaller residences available.  During the fall semester, the CBS Housing Department supplements the available accommodation with private housing. 

Student Life

Joining one of the many interest organizations or student associations at CBS is a great way to meet new friends and develop your interests. They range from academic- or career-oriented associations, social or political interest groups, religious associations, and sports clubs. 

Studenterhuset is located in the city centre and is the heart of the Copenhagen student community.  Students come to study in the study hall, relax in the café, or have fun at the nightly events that span quizzes (in English, of course), swing dance, and live concerts. Every Wednesday is “International Night,"a casual party for international and Danish students.


Denmark is located in Scandinavia in Northern Europe between the Baltic Sea and the North Sea.  Nowhere in Denmark is more than 50 km from the sea.  Denmark’s location makes it a gateway to other Scandinavian countries and the rest of Europe.
