Rie Gleie, student: This is my good-luck bag, which I bought on one of my last days in London before going home and starting my education as a journalist. I’m on an exchange trip at CBS.
Jonas Føgh-Larsen, HA EB: I’ve had this bag for two years and I inherited it from my older brother, who got it when he started at CBS. I’m very fond of the light colour, and I especially like the strap.
Camilla Sløk, Associate Professor: I bought this on a trip with my lovely boyfriend, so it holds a lot of good memories. And I really like the colour.
Nicklas Lilleskov Falk Rasmussen, HA (psyk): I live in Slagelse and commute every day, so I chose a backpack that fits my back and is good for cycling. It’s nice and roomy, easy to pack, looks good and I especially like the way it does up.
Amanda Landberg, Cand.merc: I’ve travelled a lot in Asia, where I wore out my first Fjällräv backpack. But I like Fjällräv and colours, so I bought this one.
Søren Henning Jensen, Associate Professor: My wife gave me this bag, so I’m very fond of it. It’s spacious without being bulky. And I like the colour and style. It has followed my around on three continents.
Siv Britt Mansa, project manager: I chose this one because of its size, simplicity, spaciousness… it can hold documents, it’s black and it’s easy to carry over your shoulder.
Peter Nordgaard, Associate Professor: I visit many places in the course of a day, often by bike, so I can’t carry anything in my hands. This is practical and solid with room for my computer, iPad and heavy textbooks.
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. Right now, the project team is looking for students, faculty members and external individuals wishing to join. 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. Right now, he is collaborating with the organization Stages of Science on a play about the ethical dilemmas of artificial intelligence. 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.
'Student Life at CBS', a new app designed by CBS Students, is due out on September 1.
