Semester Exchange - Copenhagen Business School

Semester Exchange - Copenhagen Business School

Copenhagen Business School (CBS) is Denmark’s largest educational institution within business economics in a wide sense. This university is committed to providing business-relevant study programs and continuing education programs for the public and, in particular, the private sector. Programs are based on a strong and internationally renowned research base that CBS works continuously to strengthen. CBS has a Center of Excellence, funded by the Danish National Research Foundation, as well as a number of European Research Council Grants. CBS has a social responsibility to communicate knowledge and new ideas to tomorrow’s business leaders and society in general. Its main contribution in this field is research-based education, and investment in research and high scientific standards is therefore crucial to CBS’ contribution to society. Being a government-financed institution, CBS receives most of its funding from the government. Grants to the university sector mainly consist of an activity-based educational grant and a basic research funding that is essentially historically determined for each individual university.
