Danske Bank’s money laundering case, in which potentially more than DKK 1,000 billion was laundered via the bank’s Estonian branch, is resulting in consequential action taken by CBS.

According to a statement on CBS’ intranet, Share, senior management has decided to curb new collaboration with the bank.

“We have decided that CBS will not establish new collaborations with Danske Bank, until a new top management has been appointed and has demonstrated the ability to restore confidence in the bank through critical dialogue with society,” says Per Holten-Andersen in the statement.

After the bank’s own internal investigation revealed gross mismanagement in relation to money laundering, members of the senior management have, according to the statement, been asked questions about CBS’ current and future plans for collaboration with Danske Bank. And this resulted in CBS looking into its current collaborations with Danske Bank in order to make a decision.

“There is no doubt that we are taking this matter very seriously – not least because we, as a business school, wish to promote and develop responsibility and responsible leadership in our students,” it says in the statement from senior management.

The current collaboration, which will continue according to the statement, totals DKK 21.5 million, of which DKK 9 million is donated by Danske Bank, the statement shows.

“However, there is no doubt that we will paying special attention to our collaborative relationships with Danske Bank and the next steps of the bank’s top management in the coming months,” says Per Holten-Andersen.

    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.
