COPENHAGEN BUSINESS SCHOOL
Copenhagen Business School (CBS) views
itself as a European University and strives to be among the best
institutions of higher education in Europe. Research and teaching are
conducted according to European standards and quality is measured up
against the best foreign universities. The Copenhagen Business School is
both Denmark's most internationally oriented institution of higher
education and the one university in Denmark that offers the most
comprehensive range of university level degrees in business economics
and modern languages.
Copenhagen was founded more than 800 years ago and combines the
old-world charm of its medieval origins with the vibrant life of a
modern European metropolis. A city of 1.5 million people, it is human in
scale and lively in atmosphere. A network of car-free pedestrian zones
and plazas inside the historical ramparts creates a livable downtown
area where good cinemas, discos and cafés are crowded with friendly
people to meet. Copenhagen is a safe city with a low crime rate. Trains
and buses are safe and clean, and buses operate around the clock.
CBS is located in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen close to
everything cultural and exciting: the new town centre of Frederiksberg,
the Copenhagen Metro, the new Frederiksberg high school, the central
library and much more. This neighborhood is rapidly becoming the heart
of the Copenhagen metropolitan area. CBS is experiencing a lot of growth
and expansion these days and the school is regarded as an essential part
of the Frederiksberg environment.
In keeping with international
orientation, several full degree programs at CBS are taught entirely in
English. This gives you the opportunity to take courses side by side
with Danish students.
Courses in English are available in the following
- Denmark and the Danes – Society, Culture
- Business Law
A complete list of
courses and descriptions is available on CBS' website.
