About Copenhagen Business School

Copenhagen Business School logo

Copenhagen Business School (CBS) is Denmark's most internationally-oriented institution of higher education, as well as the one university in Denmark offering the most comprehensive range of university level degrees in business economics and modern languages. CBS is also one of the 3 largest business schools in Northern Europe. It is a richly stimulating international and multicultural environment in which to work and study. CBS aims to contribute to the creation of value in society and in enterprises and to develop research-based knowledge in partnership with the business community.

 

Term Dates

Copenhagen Business School offers IBEX opportunities in the fall and spring semesters, as well as a summer semester program.

  • Fall semester: late-August to late-December
  • Spring semester: late-January to late-June
  • Summer Program: late-June to early-August (see details below - jump link)

 

Dates are approximate and may be subject to change.

 

Housing and Living Costs

  • Housing: The housing application process is on a first-come, first-served basis, and on-campus accommodation is not guaranteed. However, the CBS Housing Department facilitates a private housing option as a supplement to campus housing in the fall semester, when demand for residence halls is especially high. The cost for housing is approximately 4,284 – 7,856 DKK/month.
  • Food and daily expenses: 1,500 – 3,000 DKK/month.
  • Books and supplies: 100 – 2,000 DKK/semester
  • Transportation (bus, train, metro): 700 – 2,700 DKK/month if you travel every day

Language of Instruction

Danish and English. A Danish Crash Course is offered the week prior to the Introduction Week.

 

Student Services

The Copenhagen Business School has a "buddy system" arrangement in which each exchange/guest student will be assigned a Danish "buddy" to help in getting through the first few weeks in the new surroundings. This includes being picked up in the airport, help with registration at the National Registry, advice on shopping, post offices, and other practical matters. "Buddies" are CBS students who have volunteered to help one or more international students. Throughout the semester various activities are planned for the international students and their buddies.


CBS Summer Program Overview

The summer semester IBEX opportunity at CBS is unique to Copenhagen Business School. Known as the International Summer University Program (ISUP), it runs from late June to early August.  Unlike the fall and spring programs which are full semesters, the ISUP program takes place over 6 1/2-weeks. It offers you the option of completing the equivalent of a half semester (8 NYU credits) in a multicultural environment. A full load will consist of two courses taught by outstanding academics. Active involvement of international senior executives from Danish and multinational companies will be an integral part of many of the courses.

 

Summer Program Term Dates 

  • Summer Program: late-June to early-August

 

Summer Program Housing and Living Costs 

NYU summer tuition applies to this program on a per-credit basis for 8 NYU Stern credits: approximately $12,000. This is in addition to the housing, transportation, book and personal expenses you will have for this program, similar to the expenses outlined above for the semester program.

Academic Information

If you are accepted to IBEX, you will attend two individual advising meetings to plan and revise your schedule: one with NYU Stern Academic Advising and one with the NYU Stern International Programs team. As you build your academic schedule for your semester abroad, carefully review and consider the following course information.

 

IBEX Course Information

  • You may take a full semester of business classes while abroad on IBEX.
  • Leave room for at least two general electives in your schedule. This allows you to:
    • Take interesting, location-specific courses not offered at Stern, and
    • Have more flexibility during the course registration process.
  • Reference the IBEX Course Guide: What you can or cannot take.
    • You can take a maximum of two classes per concentration.
    • Accounting courses cannot be taken for credit toward the Accounting or CPA majors/concentrations.
    • All IBEX grades will transfer back to NYU Stern as Pass/Fail.

 

Previously Approved Courses

  • Listed below are courses that were taken previously by Stern IBEX students and have already been approved for a specific NYU equivalent.
  • There is no guarantee that the courses listed here will be offered during the specific semester you study abroad. It is important to be flexible. Have a Plan A and Plan B and the space to take some electives.
  • If a course is already listed here as approved, it does not need to be reviewed again, unless you want to see if it will count towards a new requirement.

 

Finding New Courses

  • You are not limited to only taking the courses listed on this page.
  • If you see a course on CBS's website that you would like to take, but is not listed below, you must submit the syllabus to Stern’s International Programs team for approval.
  • Once CBS publishes its confirmed courses for the semester you will be attending, you can revise your list as needed based on what is actually being offered.
  • Please note: CBS has a separate course list for its International Summer University Program (ISUP).
