Strong dissatisfaction with the MSc EBA (cand.merc.) decision process expressed by faculty and students seems to have been assuaged. The extended hearing process, which is reinstituting one of the concentrations (Strategy, Organisation and Leadership) to the portfolio has left both Senior Management and faculty representatives in good Christmas spirits regarding the process. “It’s a win-win. We have a Senior Management team that listens,” says Professor Nanna Mik-Meyer. The process leader Dean of Education Anna Thomasson chimes in, grateful for the participation and commitment from the organisation.

On Thursday 15 December, the final decision arrived about the new MSc EBA (cand.merc.) programmes – with one significant change: the concentration SOL (Strategy, Organisation and Leadership) will remain on board and continue as an MSc EBA programme from 2024.

Biggest MSc EBA (cand.merc.) revision in 30 years: Fewer options in the future. Four of the current 14 concentrations to disappear
In a bid to align CBS’s flagship MSc EBA (cand.merc.) programme with ministerial requirements, the MSc EBA (cand.merc.) study board’s recommendation to senior management is to cut away five of the current 14 concentrations. Senior Management approves, but will save Applied Economics and Finance (AEF). Both the Academic Council and a reference group are raising concerns, not least over a “rushed process” and the reduction of core areas such as economics, organisation and marketing. Senior Management will host an open online Teams meeting on Wednesday 9 November at 11:15 and a meeting for students and others interested on Thursday 10 November at 8:45.
