Courses available for exchange students

Both undergraduate and graduate courses are offered to all exchange students. However, the MBA courses are not available to exchange student due to differences in the core structure of the programs. Generally, spring semester courses are announced on the web during October whereas autumn semester course are announced during April. Until then, you may be inspired by the course selection from the previous spring or autumn semester. There are always a few changes in our course offerings from one year to the next, but normally the majority of the courses are repeated.

Danish law requires all exchange students to be full time (completing 30 ECTS).

The CBS housing department has access to nine student residence halls, and priority is given to international exchange, EMS, double degree and ISUP students, who are in Copenhagen for a short period and thus cannot commit to a long-term housing contract required by most Danish rental companies. During the autumn semester, the CBS Housing Department supplements the available accommodation with private housing.
