A few days ago, 120 CBS students received a letter from two lecturers due to teach on an upcoming macroeconomics course. The letter stated that the lecturers refuse to teach any classes until the Corona Passport is no longer required for access to CBS Campus.

At CBS Students, there is no support for the message in the letter sent to the students nor more generally for the comparison drawn by the two lecturers between the Nazi-era Jewish passport from World War II and the current Corona Passport.

“We believe the lecturers have made some unfortunate comparisons in their statements and have acted in an inappropriate manner towards the students, who are now without teachers. If this situation is not resolved quickly, it will have a clear negative impact on the students’ studies,” says Mikkel August Wallind, president of CBS Students.

CBS Students also clearly underlines its support for the current campus restrictions.

“The most important point for us at CBS Students is to ensure the best possible learning environment for the students, and this case is anything but that. We trust that CBS will handle the matter in an appropriate and professional manner,” says Mikkel August Wallind.

CBS has yet to disclose who will take over teaching the course but has given an assurance that the students will receive the promised course.

CBS Students has also been in touch with CBS Management and is relieved to hear that planning is moving forward to ensure that the students can be taught the course set to start next week.

“We have not heard much back from CBS, but we have been told that they have matters under control, as we have trusted all along. We haven’t been in touch with the affected students, but all that matters is that they are being treated properly,” says Mikkel August Wallind.

    CBS Associate Professor starts YouTube channel on compliance: “We must communicate research differently”

    For Associate Professor Kalle Johannes Rose, his YouTube channel about risk-based compliance serves many purposes. It is both a personal tool to help him structure and explain the material as well as an opportunity to reach out to people working with compliance and for them to ask questions before he finishes a new book. He believes that researchers should think differently about how they communicate their research, and that CBS could do a better job of helping them.
