Denmark is a global leader in many industries, including pharmaceutical production, maritime transport, information technology, and communication. Danish businesses and organizations are steeped in a long tradition of cooperation with the public and private sectors. Innovative practices built upon critical theoretical knowledge are put to the test in this distinctly Scandinavian capital.

Copenhagen is known as one of the most charming cities in all of Europe and there is no shortage of ways to pass the time. Spend a day viewing 15th century artwork at the National Gallery or strolling along the Strøget, the world’s longest pedestrian shopping street.


Located just minutes from Central Station and the Tivoli Gardens amusement park, Copenhagen Business School (CBS) provides you with excellent support and services as a Carlson School exchange student. CBS is the second largest business school in all of Europe and enjoys intimate ties with both the local and international business communities. As an internationally-focused university, CBS students gather from around the world to exchange ideas and impressions as they share success in putting their skills into practice.


To be eligible for this education abroad program, you must be:

  • A current student enrolled in a Carlson School Part-time MBA or MA-HRIR program
  • In good academic standing with a minimum GPA of 3.0
  • Additional criteria may apply

The University of Minnesota is committed to the policy that all persons shall have equal access to its programs, facilities and employment without regard to race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, age, marital status, disability, public assistance status, veteran status, or sexual orientation.


Students in the program receive up to 14 S/N Carlson School International Business (IBUS 5300) credits for their semester at CBS. Students enroll in 4 full (7.5 ECTS) courses at CBS to earn 14 Carlson School credits. Intercultural Communication and Management courses offer a unique opportunity to engage the subject content in an international environment with fellow students from around the globe.


CBS can arrange accommodation in houses, flats, residence halls, or shared student flats. Housing is guaranteed for students who apply by the deadline (June and November, for Fall and Spring respectively) though location preference is not. Costs vary.
