"Handelshøjskolen i København" is established
In 1917, the Danish Society for the Advancement of Business Education establishes Købmandsskolens Handelshøjskoleafdeling, later known as Handelshøjskolen i København.
Handelshøjskolen is established in 1917 by the Danish Society for the Advancement of Business Education as an independent division of the Copenhagen School of Commerce (Købmandsskolen). The new institution, housed in a separate wing of The Copenhagen School of Commerce, offers a number of evening courses for young business professionals with lectures on economic theory, social science and accounting. The courses are attended almost exclusively by men. 168 students are enrolled the first year.
Marius Vibæk, founder of the school, is the manager of the new school and is appointed as director in 1926.
