Lockdown – Summer University moves online – updated on April 16th at 3 pm
On Monday, April 6th, the Danish government has extended the lockdown of educational institutions to Sunday, May 10th. CBS will keep you updated with the latest news through the official website.
CBS is converting all classes for the rest of the semester to online classes. The classes will be substituted with online teaching via Canvas. The teaching can be videos of lectures, online exercises or other types of online teaching. For the most part, it will not be live-streaming.
All exams for the rest of the semester including the retakes in August will take place online. All sit-in exams and oral exams will change to an alternative format that allows you to take the exam at home. The exam form will be adjusted to fit the learning objectives so that you will be assessed on the same criteria. You will get detailed information on Digital Exam.
Summer University 2020 is moving online as well. This means that all lectures and all exams are conducted online.

The IB Union’s mission is to improve student life for students of the BSc in International Business at Copenhagen Business School. The union strives towards improving both academic and social skills of the IB students with various offers of both academic and social events and material resources for all IB’ers.
Recently in the Union…
In December, IB Union hosted an insightful event with one of the largest professional service firms in the entire world, namely PwC.
We were honored that former IB students from such a large organization took their time out of their busy schedules to partner up with IB Union to inspire students, We got an inside in how PwC finds new talent and how we should handle future job interviews.
A huge thank you to Christine Nordam Andersen for arranging the event and to the speakers Anders Rona Duer, Cecilie Glamann, and Johannes Zwicky for taking time out of your day to come and talk to us. We very much appreciate your efforts!
In January, the first IB Friday Bar was held to ensure that the IB’ers going on the ski trip were prepared, and everyone was, of course, more than welcomed.
Wearing the best after ski wear (no less had been allowed) and showing us how you would convince the French at La Folie Douce that Danes (and international IB’ers!) party the best, were the main goals behind such event that ended up being on point. All kinds of skiwear were accepted, there wasn’t discrimination between Helly Hansen, Salomon, SOS, Kari Traa, Odlo, etc. IB Union just wanted you to feel prepared for the trip of the year, and, at the end of the game, our mission was accomplished!
In February, it was that time of the quarter again… the first IB Dinner of the semester, the year and the decade, and everyone was extremely excited!
Once again we partnered up with The Zoo and secured the best possible deal for everyone. On top of that, everyone had the chance to win some alcohol! This time, every dinner was assigned a theme for their dinner, and they had to send us a picture of their group before a certain time.
The winners were selected and they received alcohol at The Zoo. Everyone had a great time and we are looking forward to seeing you again next time!
Also in February, IB Union had the pleasure of hosting the IB Alumni event 2020 – Ups & Downs. The evening was filled with valuable career advice, interesting career stories, laughter and networking. We were happy to hear the experiences of Anders Philip Skovsgaard Valentin, Frederikke B. Kaysen, Kim Rants and Martin Collignon, four IB alumni, while gaining many insights and (hopefully) learning from their advice.
Everyone appreciated the different perspectives, whether those were due to different industry experiences or challenges the speakers had faced. The personal angle of these career stories was truly something unique. Some key points made during the evening were to pursue the things that make us happy, to have a plan b and to trust our instincts.
We would like to say a special thank you to our amazing sponsors who made the evening possible, The LEGO Group, KPMG and Djøf. Through our sponsors we got to hear about the services offered by these companies.
Thank you again to our academic team for working hard in order to make this evening a possibility, Celiane Bjørn Lindestrøm, Anders Dupont and August Solliv!
