The Copenhagen program combines academic coursework with cultural enrichment. Copenhagen Business School (CBS) offers a strong academic focus as well as the opportunity to immerse yourself in a multicultural environment where you can make international business contacts. The program addresses core degree requirements at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Class discussions and group projects are enriched by the involvement of multinational senior executives from Danish and International companies. They provide real world preparation, experience and insight on intercultural differences. All courses are taught in English and are attended by Danish and other international students as well as USAC participants.
The Copenhagen Business School (CBS) is one of Denmark's largest institutions of higher education and one of the largest business schools in Europe. It is the university level partner of Danish trade and industry and, as such, maintains constant cooperation with them to ensure that the quality of instruction, programs and research meet the challenges posed by growing international competition. CBS does not have a central campus, but is housed in a number of buildings located in central Copenhagen. The university has a "Buddy System" arrangement so that each USAC student is assigned a Danish student as a "buddy." If you supply the university with your itinerary ahead of time, this "buddy" will meet you at the airport or train station when you arrive, help you through the first few weeks and answer any questions you may have. This is a great way to quickly integrate yourself with the locals.
This program is Spring semester only. The Copenhagen program is administered in the U.S. by the USAC Central Office and in Copenhagen by a Program Coordinator who is responsible for the overall operations of the program abroad: answering questions about student housing, assisting with class registration and overseeing the students' well-being. Robin Jensen, a Denmark resident, is the Program Coordinator for the USAC Copenhagen program.
