Copenhagen MBA Admissions 2020 Highlights
The school says the MBA participants will be able to gain critical insights into the Scandinavian business model, much admired for its emphasis on ethical decision making, social responsibility and green agenda.
The class sizes are purposely kept small so that you will be able to closely work with the faculty, voice your opinions in a supportive atmosphere and make the most of your talent and potential.
The presence of young professionals from different backgrounds, industries and nationalities not only add to diversity in the classroom but also help the students develop a global outlook as well as an international network for the future.
Apart from the core courses of Finance, Strategy and Marketing, the students develop the ability to think, act and lead responsibly through a course in Managing Sustainable Corporations. The program’s broad focus is on CSR and sustainability.
The school’s longstanding links with the Danish business community and several international firms ensure that you get plenty of opportunities to interact with potential employers during the program. A personalized MBA career team will also engage with you and provide inspiration and coaching at every stage.
While there is no specific candidate profile, students are enrolled on the basis of diverse backgrounds in educational, professional, cultural, national, religious and socioeconomic sectors.
