What do drinks with insects in them, microbiomes in your guts, and cloud-based intelligence have in common? We spent the day looking at and trying out the different products and services that student start-ups presented during CBS Entrepreneurial Day 2017. Among other things, there were investors with deep pockets, entrepreneurial cupcakes, and various types of drones.
Copenhagen School of Entrepreneurship encourages students to approach them with good ideas. The giant light bulb is present and alit at CBS Entrepreneurial Day to attest to that.
Using a single line, Say Copenhagen designs unique t-shirts with iconic figures such as David Bowie, Umma Thurman, or Biggie Smalls printed on them. Every shirt is either black or white to keep a simple minimalistic look.

Confusion, crisis meetings and – hopefully – clarification. The MSc EBA (cand.merc.) reform, which proposed cutting four of the current 14 concentrations from 2024 onwards, has sparked criticism. CBS WIRE sums up the main questions from faculty and students and puts them to President Nikolaj Malchow-Møller and the Programme Director for the MSc (cand.merc.) programmes, Henrik Sornn-Friese.
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.
