Liza Dava, IBP, Exchange Student from Budapest: I have been here for two years, and I really find all the student organizations so nice. It's easy to find something which is interesting. For instance, I really like the CBS Feminist Society.
Philip Maldia Madsen, HA Mat: It’s great that you have people from all over the world gathered at CBS. It gives me much more energy and a more dynamic day at school. And then I really enjoy speaking different languages during a day – especially English as it is a part of me as a Danish-American.
Anne Malberg Horsager, Head of CBS Careers: I'm a committed networker and take in all sorts of professional networks.
It is by listening to other people stories, I get my energy.
Jesper Smedegaard Madsen, Special Advicer, CBS Legal: Sports statistics and point systems fascinates me. For instance, it's quite funny to know that Vincenzo Nibali is one out of five who've won a stage, had the yellow jersey, and finished on the podium in Giro d'Italia, Tour de France and Vuelta a Espana.
Mette Holm Linnet, IBP bachelor: I moved from Ribe in Jutland to Copenhagen about a month ago. It can be a little scary, but the feeling of being independent is great. Now, I have to figure out what all the student organizations are about, so I can sign up for some of them.
Thomas Gylling, Study Counselling at CBS: My clothing style is pretty CBS-ish, I would say. It's normally something that signals colors and life - just like CBS. I work with future students and want to show that CBS is more than stereotypes.
Kashaana Lalli, MSc Innovation in Health Care: I just moved to Copenhagen a couple of months ago from Vancouver. Back in Canada, I work as a nurse, and I am here to study my master degree. After this photo shooting I am going to have pizza with my class – I just started today!
Mahmoud Hussein A Mahad, IBP student: I'm born and raised on Frederiksberg, just around the corner from CBS.
Before I started at CBS, I thought it would be a place with a lot of stereotypes. But it is not at all like that. People are so different. Just like the rest of the world, and I think that's nice.
Kate Pilkington, Head of CBS Nexus: I love live rock music. Actually all kinds of live music! And making events - and making students make events at Nexus!
Somchai Bronlow, Spisestuerne: I'm off in a moment, and then I'll go and pick up my two kids. They are 3,5 years and three months old. It can be a little stressful, if I'm also very busy at work.

Laurenz Aisenpreis is a CBS student who, in his spare time, helps refugees in Greater Copenhagen to get bikes so that they can leave the house to buy groceries, go to work etc. “We don’t have enough bikes for all the requests, so we need as many as we can get,” Laurenz says, encouraging everyone to donate their old bikes to a good cause.
How do we prevent researchers and small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) from overlooking each other when hoping to collaborate? Start by accepting different work paces and respecting each other’s differences, advises CBS Professor Luigi Butera. “It’s kind of like dating,” he said at a recent workshop designed to bring SMEs and CBS researchers closer together.
About half of all students in Denmark have used at least one illegally shared textbook while studying. The majority are obtained from friends or study groups, and many students find this practice acceptable. But when books are illegally shared, writers are not paid, which over the years will mean that fewer textbooks will be written in Danish and about Danish subjects.
Right now, CBS is helping three Ukrainian students who are entering CBS’ International Summer University Programme. “We are working together with Kharkiv National University in Ukraine and have offered them a free spot on relevant courses at CBS during the summer,” explains Wilbert van der Meer, Head of the International Office at CBS.

Humour is essential everywhere – in all walks of life. But how does humour work? And is it always helpful? Humour researcher and professor emeritus at CBS Lita Lundquist and British-born, Danish-based Helen Dyrbye, translator and principal author of The Xenophobe’s Guide to the Danes, have co-authored a new book called Danish Humour – Sink or Swim and have some advice on how humour can backfire across cultures.
Hafaz Shah is an HD student at CBS who is constantly improving his resume to attract potential employers. Yet he is repeatedly rejected at job interviews. He knows the reason: his wheelchair. Hafaz has cerebral palsy and therefore can’t walk, which, according to him, is often a showstopper for any hiring panel. “When people see me, they assume I won’t be able to work,” he says.
