Biggest MSc EBA (cand.merc.) revision in 30 years: Fewer options in the future. Four of the current 14 concentrations to disappear
In a bid to align CBS’s flagship MSc EBA (cand.merc.) programme with ministerial requirements, the MSc EBA (cand.merc.) study board’s recommendation to senior management is to cut away five of the current 14 concentrations. Senior Management approves, but will save Applied Economics and Finance (AEF). Both the Academic Council and a reference group are raising concerns, not least over a “rushed process” and the reduction of core areas such as economics, organisation and marketing. Senior Management will host an open online Teams meeting on Wednesday 9 November at 11:15 and a meeting for students and others interested on Thursday 10 November at 8:45.

This autumn, the session will be scaled up into a Masterclass for all graduate students.
