Friendships that span the globe
My CBS story begins back in high school, where I studied a programme called International Studies. I chose this programme because I always had an interest in foreign cultures and languages, and I figured this would be a good way to experience that, occasionally.
After finishing the programme, I knew I wanted to be exposed to an international environment more often. I wanted to get to know people from all over the world, interact with them, learn about their culture and customs and also teach them about ours. To experience this, I believe that there is no better place in Denmark than at CBS.
I wanted an international environment, and I have in no way been disappointed here at CBS. Culture is everywhere you look: Your classmates, the professors and the student unions are just a few examples. As you interact with all of these on a daily basis, you truly do get a healthy dose of foreign culture, and you get to expand your horizon as much as you want.
For me, this is one of the most amazing things about CBS, and what has really solidified that studying at CBS was the right choice. The diversity at campus is truly something to be admired, and the efforts to ensure inclusion of foreign students are also very admirable. The buddy programme, which I highly recommend participating in, is a testament to CBS’ and the students’ efforts to ensure that everybody feels welcome here in Denmark, and it also allows you to gain great friendships that span across the entire world.
Of course, as with everything else at a university, it is all about how much effort you put into it. If you want to have the international experience, the possibility is definitely there, and I would like to thank CBS for that. Because if you decide to pursue the international experience, you are going to have a great time!
