AT A GLANCE/LOCATION
Copenhagen Business School (CBS) is located in the capital of Denmark. CBS is a large business university with 21,000 full and part time students. Copenhagen Business School is highly competitive and is ranked #10 in the world for business and management. Therefore, this program is ideal for business majors, preferably who are in junior status. Each year, Copenhagen Business School welcomes around 1,200 exchange students from around the world, and they teach traditional courses in Economics, Management, and Business Administration. CBS is also well-known for cross-disciplinary research and teaching. Copenhagen Business School is internationally accredited by AACSB, EQUIS, and AMBA, earning it the distinct honor of receiving “triple-crown” accreditation.
Copenhagen Business School is located in Denmark. Denmark is located in Scandinavia - Northern Europe between the Baltic Sea and the North Sea. No location 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. Danes are said to be the happiest people in the world, and Copenhagen is a considered one of the most liveable cities in the world. Copenhagen is a city large enough for every kind of life philosophy, but small enough to bicycle from one end to the other in twenty minutes. It is all there, the urban pulse in the cobbled streets, the castles and bell towers, the artists, makers and the green grass, the mothers, babies and their strollers, and the hipsters and their dreams.
SPRING SEMESTER: February - May/June
FALL SEMESTER: August - December/January
AREAS OF STUDY
Areas of study that may be of interest to Belmont students are: accounting, communication, economics, entrepreneurship, finance, international business, law, management, marketing, political science, social entrepreneurship, and statistics.
While all courses are in English, students have the opportunity to take a Danish Crash course the week prior to starting their program. CBS differs from other business schools by offering a comprehensive approach to projects, group work, and teamwork. Students are empowered and encouraged to develop their communication skills through open classroom debates. Aside from traditional business classes, coursework is also offered in economics, culture, communication, politics, and law. Learn more about available courses here.
On-campus housing is competitive and not guaranteed, but the university supports students in finding private housing if they are unable to secure student housing. Housing costs between USD $750-$1,000 a month. Online application for housing opens a few months before semester start. Nominated students will be emailed directly on their CBS email account, then students will apply for housing directly to Copenhagen Business School. Learn more here.
Students pay housing directly to Copenhagen Business School.
2. Belmont Tuition:
Tuition is charged at the regular semester rate. Students pay tuition to Belmont.
Students are responsible for booking their own international travel. Students should wait until they receive formal acceptance into their program before booking their airfare.
Joining one of the many interest organizations of students associations at Copenhagen Business School 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 center 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 of international and Danish students. The Copenhagen Business School Buddy Program connects CBS students and incoming exchange students studying at CBS for a semester. It’s a great opportunity to interact with students from many countries and cultures. For CBS students, it is an opportunity to be the first contact, impression, and experiences for the exchange students when arriving in Copenhagen. For the exchange students, it is a help in getting settled in Copenhagen and finding the way to their residence.
