Learning environment

At Cphbusiness, we see it as our most important task to contribute to your development so that you can help create the future business life.

Thus, Cphbusiness’ study activities aim to develop your academic skills as well as your personal skills so that you can create value at a work place or start and run your own company.

We believe that you learn best by working with specific tasks in practice. Therefore, our study activities are less focused on traditional teaching and to a greater extent built around activities where you play an active role yourself. You will have co-responsibility for and influence on your own learning, and feedback will be an important part of the study activities.

At Cphbusiness we therefore give priority to

  • a mix of study activities (for example project work, workshops, digital learning activities and traditional teaching)
  • study activities with lecturers, in study groups and on an individual level
  • learning in groups with your fellow students
  • challenging your international and linguistic skills
  • a full time study programme

Our focus

Consequently, we have created an introduction programme with a strong academic focus that will quickly familiarise you with the programme and the expectations we have of you as a student.

We also place emphasis on developing a sound social community for the class in order to create a strong learning culture that allows you to develop your skills and qualify directly for a job.

Practical information

It is very important to us that you start your time here at Cphbusiness in the best way possible. Therefore we have brochures with useful information about Cphbusiness and the student organisation as well as practical information about living in Denmark.

  • Study Start Test

    In connection with the beginning of your studies, you must complete a preliminary study test, consisting of two activities:

    1st activity

    Within the first week of your studies, you must ensure that we have received your most recent contact information. Provide your phone number in self service on our website www.cphbusiness.dk.

    2nd activity

    During your first weeks of studies, you will receive an email in your study email (= the email address you received from Cphbusiness). This email contains a link to an Intro Survey, where we would like to hear about your first weeks at Cphbusiness and a little more about your background. The questionnaire is obligatory, though you may skip questions you do not wish to answer.

    If the above mentioned activities are not completed, you will fail the preliminary study test and be expelled in accordance with the rules and regulations for your degree programme.

  • Learning environment and study activities

    At Cphbusiness, we see it as our most important task to contribute to your development so that you can help create the future business life.

    Thus, Cphbusiness’ study activities aim to develop your academic and personal skills, in order to let you navigate in an organisation and create value at a work place or start and run your own company.

    Study activities

    We believe that you learn best by working with specific tasks in practice. Therefore, our student activities are less focused on traditional teaching and to a greater extent built around activities where you play an active role yourself. You will have co-responsibility for and influence on your own learning, and feedback will be an important part of the study activities.

    Besides traditional teaching, the study activities will include project work, cases and assignment work, where you through cooperation and dialogue solve specific tasks along with your fellow students and with your lecturers as counsellors. Furthermore, you will be challenged in digital study activities.

    At Cphbusiness, all of the study programmes are scheduled as a full-time course of study. However, we try to create an environment where you can study full-time and also work at a part-time job. We do this in order to help you strengthen your business skills. As a result of this, you typically have two half days or one whole day off every week, which you can use on your part-time job, together with your study group or on your own preparation.

    Education with a world of opportunities

    At Cphbusiness, we offer you the opportunity to build and unfold your global, intercultural and linguistic skills through study activities, where you cooperate with students from all over the world. As a natural part of the study programme, the teaching activities including books and cases etc. will be in English.

    In every study programme, an obligatory internship is included where you can test your own skills in a company abroad or in an international company in Denmark. In doing so, you will prepare yourself for the global job market that waits for you when you graduate.

    What we expect of you as a student

    Active participation in the study activities at Cphbusiness will, to a great extent, help you feel better equipped for your future job. Therefore, we expect that you:

    • participate in study activities with lecturers, in study groups and on an individual level;
    • participate in a mix of study activities (for example project work, workshops, digital learning activities and traditional teaching);
    • want to learn in groups along with your fellow students with a diverse background;
    • work full time with your studies – this means around 40 hours weekly besides a potential part-time job; and
    • want to be challenged in your international and linguistic skills.
