BSc in International Business

Published: December 6, 2016

Hi all, I realize I haven’t really gone into a lot of detail yet about my bachelor program at CBS, BSc in International Business. To be honest, I knew very little about the program when I applied – I knew I wanted to study in Copenhagen, I knew I wanted to study something involving business, and I knew that many Norwegians were studying at CBS and were very happy with the choice. So when looking at the courses that CBS had to offer, I saw that International Business was the most difficult to get into and figured it would be a…

IB Dinners and Christmas Lunch

Published: November 25, 2016

Hi all, Last week, IB Dinners was arranged – a really fun dinner event for International Business students of all three years. Basically, you sign up, either as a host or as a guest, and then you are placed in a group of around five to eight people. The hosts cook dinner for the guests, and then you wine and dine together before everyone meets up at one of the bars or clubs in the city. My group was served delicious risotto and wine, and we played lots of fun games. It is such a great way to meet new people,…

Cabin in the Woods

Published: November 21, 2016

Last Saturday started off at 05.30 am to go to Malmö – unfortunately for me, I had not been on top of my game with applying for exchange, and when I finally got around to booking a TOEFL test to apply with, the only free spots were in Malmö. So I arrived at 8.00 am in Sweden to take the test, a along with some other unlucky souls from CBS who were in the same situation as me. Although it was a bit of a hassle, I was pleasantly surprised at how cozy the little part of Malmö I got to…

Snowfall and Election Night

Published: November 13, 2016

This week we actually got snow in Copenhagen! Some friends and I had been to the movies at Palads on Tuesday to see the Accountant, and when we got out, the snow was falling. So we biked home in the “snow storm”, and continued the night with the most American snacks we could find, staying up to watch the results of the election. It is quite fascinating how much time is spent on following the American election here in Scandinavia – on Tuesday, my snap story was flooded with friends who were staying up all night to watch how it would unfold. I…

A weekend trip to Trondheim

Published: November 2, 2016

Hi all! I just got back from a brief weekend visit to Trondheim, a Norwegian city with a very large university and a large student scene. I know this is only the second post and I that should probably spend some time talking about CBS and Denmark, but I do think one of the fun things about being a student and being flexible timewise is to be able to visit friends who are living other places, and studying completely different things. So on Friday I packed my things and flew to Trondheim, meeting three of my best friends who were coming…
