The DHL relay is all about teamwork. Each participant runs 5 km carrying a baton that is passed from hand to hand until the last team member crosses the finish line. At a more relaxed tempo, the five members comprising the teams of walkers complete their 5-km route together.

From amateurs to experienced runners: participants have different starting points. Others prefer encouraging their team on from the sidelines.

Some of CBS’s teams, such as TEAM FI – FastCBS ECON Team A or Strategy and Innovation 1, were happy to hear they had won places in the top 100 when the final classification results were announced.

    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.
