Kasper Christensen

Journalist

Have you ever felt so alone at CBS that you wondered if anyone would notice if you suddenly disappeared? Earlier this year, The Danish Association of Masters and PhDs released a study showing that one in every nine students at Danish universities have experienced loneliness. And CBS students are no exception.

In this CBS WIRE podcast episode, you’ll hear from Luca Rebeka Szabó. She’s a student at CBS, and she has felt lonely while studying here.

Luca is accompanied by the President of CBS Students, Mikkel Nielsen, and student Rebekka Kongsgaard who tells about their experiences on the matter from their work.

    Have you ever shared study books with a friend? Then you should definitely think twice

    About half of all students in Denmark have used at least one illegally shared textbook while studying. The majority are obtained from friends or study groups, and many students find this practice acceptable. But when books are illegally shared, writers are not paid, which over the years will mean that fewer textbooks will be written in Danish and about Danish subjects.

    No one will hire me because I’m in a wheelchair – what happened to social responsibility?

    Hafaz Shah is an HD student at CBS who is constantly improving his resume to attract potential employers. Yet he is repeatedly rejected at job interviews. He knows the reason: his wheelchair. Hafaz has cerebral palsy and therefore can’t walk, which, according to him, is often a showstopper for any hiring panel. “When people see me, they assume I won’t be able to work,” he says.
