University description (as per official university website)
Copenhagen Business School has around 15,000 students and an annual intake of around 1,000 exchange students. With this number of students as well as around 400 full-time researchers and around 500 administrative employees, CBS is one of the three largest business schools in Northern Europe.
CBS aims to:
contribute to the creation of value in society and in enterprises
train master's graduates who are competitive in an international labour market
develop research-based knowledge in cooperation with the business community.
Strategically, CBS primarily focuses on three focal areas:
Partnership with the business community
The Learning University.
CBS's most senior executive is the President who is appointed by a Governing Board composed of a majority of external members.
Mission & strategy
International Orientation with Regional Anchoring
CBS regards itself as a European university and strives to be among the top business schools in Europe. Our research and teaching is structured in line with international standards, and we measure our level of quality in comparison with the foreign top universities.
CBS regards the ěresund Region (which is one of the most dynamic regions in Europe, generating a quarter of the combined GDP of Sweden and Denmark) as its natural home territory, and is actively involved in cooperation across the ěresund, within the framework of the ěresund University.
Partnership with the Business Community
Co-operation with Danish and foreign business communities is a cornerstone in our strategy. CBS develops study programmes that meet the needs of business executives and employees for lifelong learning. We also participate in application-orientated research collaboration in connection with our internationally-oriented basic research. This includes joint research projects, the CBS Partnership Programme and the increasing number of new business research centres that perform research in collaboration with enterprises and organisations.
The Learning University
CBS seeks to provide a learning environment that focuses on learning and individualised skills development rather than focuse on teaching and mass education. At CBS, students are actively involved in the learning process, and new projects and problem-based teaching methods are developed.
Among staff, we place emphasis on qualities such as innovative capability, flexibility, and the ability to gather and structure experience in the organisation. We achieve this partly through competence development, evaluations and an organisational culture that values experiments and risk-taking.
