10 Universities in Denmark You Need to Know Before Applying Scholarships

  1. Copenhagen Business School

Copenhagen Business School, often abbreviated and referred to as CBS, is a public university situated in Copenhagen, Denmark and is considered one of the most prestigious business schools in Western Europe and the world. CBS was established in 1917 by the Danish Society for the Advancement of Business Education and Research (FUHU), however, it was not until 1920 that accounting became the first full study program at CBS. Today CBS has more than 20,000 students, 2,000 employees and offers a wide range of undergraduate and graduate programs within business, typically with an interdisciplinary and international focus. CBS is accredited by EQUIS (European Quality Improvement System), AMBA (Association of MBAs), as well as AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business), thus making it one of the few schools worldwide to hold the “triple-crown” accreditation, and along with Aarhus BSS, the only two in Denmark.

CBS receives a limited number of government scholarships each year to fund highly qualified full-degree students from non-EU/EAA countries. CBS welcomes applications from motivated graduate applicants (of all genders, ages, nationalities and religions) who come from countries outside of EU/EAA and need a student residence permit to study at CBS. This scholarship is based on the applicants’ motivation and academic background, not their financial needs.

  • Marie Curie European Industrial PhD: offering a fully funded research project with academic and industrial partners by requiring students to work with the industrial partner / company or the university at the same time as being enrolled at a university – relevant here would naturally be the IT University.
