Olga Ekdal, student assistant: If you could be a superhero, which one would you be? My mother, I think. She’s so cool!
Rasmus Reslow, MSc in Business Administration and Information Systems: If you could be a superhero, which one would you be? Batman! He is smart and I would like to use his skills as a CBS student. I really hope he can program!
Emmeli Rose, BSc in Business Administration and Management Science: If you could be a superhero, which one would you be? A superhero that can heal broken hearts. It’s so sad when you have a broken heart.
Francesco Gerli, post doc, IOA: If you could be a superhero, which one would you be? Being a hero is much more an everyday kind of thing. Caring about people and showing love.
José Mata, Professor: If you could be a superhero, which one would you be? A person that can be flexible and adapt to new circumstances.

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.
