Anders Guldbrandsen, Souschef, Spisestuerne: I got a dragon on my back when I was 16-17 which wasn't particularly successful, so I gave a professional tattoo artist free rein to fix the damage. He worked on it for two years with me showing up every two months.
Elida Unneberg, Internationale Business: It’s a personal date that means a lot to me.
Dinny Jensen, for a job interview at CBS: I wanted to have a kind of sailor’s tattoo and at the same time I was crazy about Manga and Animé. So one day I sat down and had a few beers with a tattoo artist and we drew her together. I love her!
Beatrice Piras, MSc in Advanced Economics and Finance: When I was 16, I lost someone who was very close to me. So it’s in memory of that person.
Jason L Nguyen, IT support: The stars are for my mom, dad, sister, little brother and me. I have the birth dates of my mom and dad on each shoulder because they’ve gone back to Vietnam. So this helps me feel that they’re still here with me.
Anne M Lykkegaard, journalist, CBS WIRE: It's my perception of Mother Earth. Wild and untamed and yet sensitive and fragile. She gives me courage and spirit when I need it.
Kasper Nielsen, chef, Spisestuerne: I moved away from home at 21 and moved in with a friend. We drank a lot of ‘gyldne damer’ (ed. golden ladies = beers) together and I nicknamed her the ‘golden lady’. So it’s in honor of her.
Agnes Brask Sørensen, HA (psyk): I was on holiday with some male friends who called me ‘pink and pretty’. We were in a festive mood in Barcelona and I had this pink flamingo done. It has a bit of a child’s drawing vibe about it and I really like it.
Damir Gorovic, IT support: Tattoos make people beautiful and it’s an artistic way of developing yourself. I’ve had four done in the last six months after saving up for 18 months. I’ll definitely get more, but I just have to save up again first.
Madeline Edri, BSc i Business, Language and Culture: One of my friends died in September 2013 and it’s in memory of that person.
Heidy Fu, MSc EBA: What are your plans for the summer? My initial summer plans were to go for a graduation trip abroad, but since that is currently not possible, we will just discover more of Denmark. And that’s nice.
Jack Kværnø-Jones, PhD, IOA: What are your plans for the summer? The original plan was a family gathering in Wales but that’s been interrupted by coronavirus. Quite disappointing. Now we are renting a holiday home by the seaside in Denmark.
Beata Maria Rasmussen, administrative officer, Financial Analysis: What are your plans for the summer?
We certainly won’t get to London as we had discussed, but maybe to Randers – the old Randers Hotel is really cozy – or the ’mountains’ of Mols or who knows, somewhere else entirely.
Jannick Friis Christensen, PhD Fellow, Department of Organization. What are your plans for the summer? I will have my PhD Defense at the end of June and embark on a new research project in August, studying pride as a public ritual and a socially-integrative ‘civil religion’. Other than that, my plan is to have no plans and see what comes my way.
Ditte Thøgersen, PhD, IOA: What are your plans for the summer? I’ll be staying at a holiday home with all four children and taking a trip to Jutland.
Guilherme Ghiraldi Simionato, MSc Customer & Commercial Development: What are your plans for the summer? We were excited to finish our thesis and were going to Africa for the summer. But coronavirus stopped our plans, so now my friends and I are going on a car trip in Denmark. That’s going to be amazing.
Sophie Marie Cappelen, PhD, IOA: What are your plans for the summer? I will be finishing my PhD in Norway, where I’ll be lucky enough to be spending plenty of time outdoors in the countryside.
COVID-WISE is a new project that aims to use an approach where little to no prior research exists to support short-term enterprises at CBS that are addressing Covid-19-related challenges.

And when COVID-WISE is launched in July, the aim is to have 30-40 cases and provide ECTS points.
Physical inactivity is a global health problem, according to the WHO. Three graduates from CBS and the University of Copenhagen set out to solve the issue and get employees moving through active breaks called ‘Pleazers’. The startup has already attracted multinational businesses including L’Oréal and Nestlé to its digital platform, which received a serious head start when the coronavirus outbreak hit.
If you ask CBS’ Associate Dean for Lifelong Learning, the theater is a good place to learn.

The plan is to invite both students and CBS alumni to join in and help shape the project.
VOXPOP: All employees are allowed back to CBS starting from this week. So what is it like? What has working from home been like? And do they miss anything about their home offices? Hear five CBS folks’ perspectives on the matter.
