Information about the intro weeks

The programme for the intro week and your schedule for the semester will be presented on the first day. On the same day you will receive online access to our intranet where you can get information about your study programme, including schedule and the student email. During the intro days you have the opportunity to meet your fellow students and get to know your team of lecturers.

An exciting 18 months journey is about to start and will hopefully bring you far ahead and contain happiness and frustration. You might think that we start out slow. Wrong – we have planned an intensive procedure starting when you meet us for the first time. Actually you have to solve an assignment before you show up. It is not difficult – and yet.

The assignment:

You must find an entrepreneur – it can be either someone you already know or would like to know. You must invite the entrepreneur out for coffee (or what ever you find appropriate) and ask him/her the following:

  1. Why did you choose to become an entrepreneur – what is your drive?
  2. What do you think are the 3 biggest challenges with being an entrepreneur?
  3. What is your best advice to a new entrepreneur?

You must take a selfie of you and the entrepreneur.

Afterwards you must ask yourself the following 3 questions:

  • A. Why did you choose this programme?
  • B. What will be your best outcome of this programme?
  • C. How can you contribute to the programme (knowledge, skills, competences, attitude, stories – you name it)?

Your selfie of you and the entrepreneur along with the answers of question 1 to 3 and A to C must be summed up in a one page article. You must upload the article to Moodle (you will get access through another letter from Cphbusiness) before Friday 25 August 2017 12:00 p.m.

If you are in doubt of how to answer the questions above (1 to 3 and A to B) just use your own interpretation.

Expect your scheduled activities to take place on weekdays between 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. If you have a student job, it should be outside these hours. Remember to bring a computer, a notebook and a pen – and curiousity.

Practical information

During the intro weeks you will visit one of our photo booths and have your picture taken for a student card.
