  • Evaluations and surveys

    Evaluations and surveys

    Cphbusiness continuously obtain knowledge about the quality of our study programmes through a number of different surveys and evaluations. You can read more about the individual evaluations below.


    At the start of each semester, the new students complete an introductory survey. The survey examines the students' experience of e.g. the admission process, their study start, the service and information level, introduction to the digital framework for the programme, and their thoughts on future education and employment.

    Student Satisfaction Survey

    Once a year a survey addressing the student’s satisfaction is sent to all Cphbusiness’ students. In the survey, the students assess their satisfaction with their study, their programme outcome and loyalty as well as assessments of a number of aspects of their programme (teaching, organisation, social environment, physical environment, etc.).

    Course evaluation

    Cphbusiness evaluates all courses in both our full time programmes and our continuing programmes. The course evaluations examine e.g. academic content, professional level and outcome, the pedagogical quality, the practical organization of programme elements and the student's responsibility for their own learning.

    Evaluation of internships

    After each completed internship, we carry out a quantitative evaluation of the internship with both trainees and internship companies. In this evaluation, the students evaluate the framework for their internship, while the internship companies evaluates the internship and the trainee's academic, professional and personal competencies.

    Employment survey

    Cphbusiness regularly obtain knowledge of the graduates' employment situation through annual employment surveys in addition to the official register-based extracts of unemployment and employment figures from Statistics Denmark.

    The survey uncover the graduates' path from education to job. This with a focus on whether the programmes are relevant to the needs of the labour market and Cphbusiness use the results to ensure the relevance of the programmes and to strengthen the guidance of current and future students.

    The employment survey is carried out on all full-time programmes 9-18 months after graduation.

    Programme evaluation

    All Cphbusiness’ programmes are individually evaluated by external experts according to a fixed cadence of six years. The programme evaluation is a method for evaluating a program's work with relevance and quality assurance. This assessment is carried out by an external expert panel, who, based on the programmes’ documented quality assurance work and an evaluation day, assess the programme based on a number of predetermined criteria. The purpose of the evaluation is to get a critical external look at the programme, which can provide new input and can counteract internal perceptions. The purpose of the evaluation is at the same time to ensure dialogue between the programme and the external panel and thereby to find potential for development.

    Programme reports and development plans

    Based on the programme reports the programme management provides a status on the quality and relevance of a programme. Furthermore, the programme reports are accompanied by a development plan for the following academic year. The plan is based on a number of selected key figures, which the Cphbusiness’ management has defined fixed limit values for. Besides the key figures, the report also summarizes knowledge about the quality and relevance of the programmes, including results from relevant surveys and evaluations conducted during the year.

    Based on the overall knowledge the programme managements have about the quality of the programmes, they fill out and prioritize the development plan. When the programme managements have finished the programme reports and development plans, the Director of Education qualify and approve the reports and plans.
