Copenhagen Business School

Summer Application Deadline: February 1

Copenhagen Business School
Copenhagen Business School 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. CBS sees the “Øresund region” as a natural home ground and is heavily engaged in the networking cooperation between the Copenhagen area and Southern Sweden within the framework of the Øresundsuniversitet.

Definitely worth considering when that city is Copenhagen where the streets are filled with sidewalk cafes and the midnight sky is not black but deep blue. Close to the city and waiting for you to discover are quaint mediaeval towns, white beaches and lovely forests. You can walk the winding streets of the old city center or see it from a canal boat. Your extracurricular activities will include getting to know both modern Danish Design and Architecture as well as a little of the Iron and Viking Ages. Travel is easy from Copenhagen and in a weekend you can take a cruise to Oslo for a variation on the Scandinavian theme or a train trip to Berlin to see how East and West are getting along.

Housing & Meals
The cost of housing and meals is not included in the program fee. Most Danish universities do not own student-housing facilities. The Danish students either live at home, in private flats or in one of the housing facilities available for young people in the Greater Copenhagen area. Accommodation for international students is organized through the Housing Office within The International Office at CBS. There are three types of accommodation available: private residence halls, shared apartments, or renting a room in private homes. The costs can vary depending on the size and amenities. All housing options provide access to basic cooking facilities.

Descriptions of housing options and costs are available on-line.

Academic Program
This summer program offers students the opportunity to take classes in a multicultural environment. All students MUST take two classes.  Each class meets for three hours twice a week for five weeks.  The sixth week is reserved for examinations.

The course equivalencies spreadsheets have been compiled from past approved Academic Plan forms.  They show when the course was last approved and how it transferred back to La Crosse.  You may notice that some classes satisfied several UWL options.

This list is not comprehensive nor does it take the place of  meeting with your advisor for final approval!  They are meant to be a guide of what courses may be appropriate for your studies abroad. 

Before you travel abroad, you will need to obtain a passport, which will serve as proof of your U.S. citizenship. A passport may allow you to gain entry to (and exit from) other countries. Depending on the country to which you're traveling, a visa may be required as well. Entry requirements vary from one country to another. The U.S. State Department issues travel warnings specific to certain countries, and offers tips and publications relevant to travel abroad generally. Well in advance of your departure, you should also familiarize yourself with international travel health issues, and health recommendations specific to your destination.

For current academic calendar refer to Program Dates.
