Copenhagen Business School

Jake Whitaker


Hello! My name is Jake Whitaker and I am a full-year exchange student from the University of Bristol, UK. Coming to a business school has been a strange experience for me, not only because I study Politics and Economics, but also because my home university doesn’t even offer business. Meaning the business-centric nature of CBS has been somewhat of a shock. However, being here has been invaluable and I hope to share some of what I have experienced.

I hope to shed light on what it’s like to be British living in Copenhagen and share some of the funny things I have noticed about Denmark from a British perspective.
