Very different from American Universities but amazing time!

I studied abroad at the Copenhagen Business School for a semester. Overall I had a great experience and would definitely recommend it. Denmark is an amazing place to study abroad in general. CBS is a great school overall but there were a few issues with the study abroad program. The worst part of my experience was with the student housing. First of all, they cannot even guarantee you a spot as an exchange student but luckily I got a spot. Second, the housing is extremely expensive for what you get, even in an expensive place like Copenhagen. We experienced many issues with our particular residence and the school was very unhelpful since all of the housing is privately run. The quality of the academics, or maybe just the elective classes offered to exchange students, also seemed to be lacking.

Even though there were some issues, it was still a great experience mostly because of the awesome city and all the great people you will meet.

information about discrimination

There is discrimination of poor people at CBS by employees. I was kicked out by campus service 4 times because I collect bottles which can be exchanged for money in food stores. They do it despite I got answer from legal office of CBS that I can collect bottles after classes are finished.

Therefore I can ask: When employees of CBS are discriminators, can this school produce social responsible managers for business? Corporate social responsibility stays just marketing, to make better PR image of company or school, people and planet will be destroyed by managers who are educated to produce profit for shareholders of some company. CBS produce managers, therefore CBS has responsibility in decreasing discrimination of poor people who are often exploited in Africa and Asia by managers (yes, by managers, shareholders enjoy in Swiss Alps, they don't have contact with workers). For example, 60% of child labor in India is done for subcontractor of Monsanto corporation.
Not only employees than students also, they should not discriminate those who are poorer than they are.

Beside it, computers in group rooms at CBS are prehistoric already several years, from 1997 or similar.

Best Memories from College

I cannot begin to describe what an incredible experience I had at the Copenhagen Business School through my study abroad program at USC. From signing up for housing, to being paired with a CBS "Danish Buddy," to language immersion classes I felt comfortable and confident that I had chosen the right study abroad program from the very school. The CBS is incredibly organized, the staff could not have been friendlier, and I loved my housing situation - a beautiful apartment with a French balcony overlooking an apartment. Seven years and counting have gone by and I still look back fondly with incredible memories. I still stay in close touch with my friends that I met abroad, and two even attended my wedding this past summer. Amazing!!
