Marin Jovanovic, Assistant Professor: What is your best summer memory? Meeting with friends every summer on the island of Prvic in Croatia. There are no cars on the whole island, just a unique laidback vibe, though I’m still working on my “no phone” summer policy.
Kate Pilkington, Managing Director, Café Nexus: What is your best summer memory? That was when we were experiencing Vietnam through my daughter’s eyes before the lockdown. She was so fascinated and crazy about everything that it gave me a special feeling.
Christian Höilund, cand. merc. i Finansiering og Regnskab: What is your best summer memory? A fantastic diving experience in the Red Sea in Egypt. I felt like a guest in a completely different world, incredibly humble about swimming together with huge shoals of fish. I have never seen anything so beautiful.
Marie Louise Rasmussen, Master of Science (MSc) in Social Sciences in HRM: What is your best summer memory? Riding on my pony through my parents’ orchard picking Clara Friis pears back when I was a child.
Tom Dahl-Østergaard, Dean’s Representative: What is your best summer memory? It was 25 years ago when we lived in Bolivia and came home to Denmark for the summer holidays. We enjoyed Denmark in a totally different way, staying with friends and at holiday homes and apartments owned by our family.
Julie G. Dinesen, Student Assistant CBS Library: What is your best summer memory? It’s summer on Funen… where it’s as charming as the historical novels written by Morten Korch and very, very lovely with the town of Svendborg, the water and the islands.
James Plumeridge, Café Nexus staff: What is your best summer memory? Going to the beach in England for a barbecue. Everybody is so nice and relaxed.

The government’s idea of reducing half of all master’s programmes to 75 ECTS, mostly within the humanities and social sciences, has met scepticism and concern at CBS.
“I don’t hear anyone applauding this idea,” says Nanna Mik-Meyer, chair of the Professor's Association at CBS.
On Thursday, Christina Egelund, Minister for Higher Education and Science, from Moderaterne (The Moderates) presented the first batch of the government’s long awaited – and dreaded – education reform plans. They include vast changes to Denmark’s education system that, according to the government, will strengthen the Danish workforce.
Twenty-five Ukrainian students will have the chance to attend courses at CBS for free this summer. The initiative is the result of a partnership between CBS and Karazin University in Kharkiv.
“We can do our share as an academic institution to strengthen Ukrainian universities,” says Martin Jes Iversen, Vice Dean of International Education.
A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but can a new name make a university department better?
Mitchell Dean believes so. As his department changes name, he is aiming for new research collaborations and a stronger focus on the problems that businesses and society are facing.
“We are giving students capacities to make a difference through their professional lives. And I think that’s what the current generation of students want: they want to contribute to positive social transformation.”
University management, students and experts from across Denmark are coming together in a new alliance that aims to make students feel better.
“It’s a conversation we need to be having,” says deputy president Inger Askehave, who represents CBS in the alliance.
Sebastian Zenker is sometimes wondering why the government has not called.
He has first-hand experience of changing a master’s programme from two years to one, which is exactly what the Danish government plans to do with its education reform plans. But so far, nobody has asked for his input.
Sometimes you don’t have to create a brand-new concept to win awards. You can just tweak an existing industry formula to increase flexibility and reach more customers. That was exactly what university students Hasan El Youssef and Elmar J. Johannsson did when they started TopTutors in 2021. A concept that secured them the CBS Startup Award in November 2022, which comes with a grant of DKK 75,000 to help them scale up their business.
If you believe that going on exchange is difficult, you might be surprised to learn that there is a space for everyone. Grades and points from extra-curricular activities do matter to some extent, but even with grades at the lower end of the spectrum, an exchange trip is within reach.
Algorithms have a hold on the stock markets that has fuelled the need for regulation. But how do we regulate what we don’t understand?
The second generation of trading algorithms are designing their own investment strategies – and they are so complicated that we are unable to understand them.
