As a result of the University's decision to restrict nonessential travel due to COVID-19, this short-term exchange program has been cancelled. We realize this will be a disappointment and want to assure everyone that student health and safety is the university’s top priority in making this difficult decision.
The Copenhagen Business School (CBS) is one of the largest business schools in Europe. Founded by the Copenhagen business community in 1917, CBS offers coursework in a broad range of academic areas and is particularly known for its cross-disciplinary research and teaching with expertise in social responsibility, financial risk management, and open innovation. It is one of the first 100 schools to become a signatory to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRIME) and is among the most engaged participants. CBS holds the "Triple Crown" accreditation (EQUIS, AMBA, and AACSB), an acknowledgement shared by only 50 business schools worldwide.
CBS is located throughout the city of Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, which is considered one of the happiest countries in the world. The city serves as a cultural and geographical link between mainland Europe and Scandinavia.

This program is only open to degree-seeking graduate students at the School of Business.
As there are limited spots available for this program, students will be nominated on a competitive basis. Applicants must have an established academic record at GW and be in good academic standing with the university (GPA of 3.0 or above).
Either 3 or 6credits are awarded for successful completion of this program.
GWSB graduate students must earn at least a B equivalent in order to receive credit for the courses taken at CBS. Grades earned through a GWSB short-term exchange will not count towards a student's GW GPA.
This program fulfills general elective credit for Master's and MBA programs. Students may petition to have study away courses count towards Graduate School of Business Certificates or other Master's degree requirements by speaking with their academic advisor.

Social and Arrival Program:
ISUP offers a Social and Arrival Program, which includes an arrival service. A location at a hotel at the airport is rented where students will receive their CBS Housing key, get assisted transport to the dormitories, and receive a warm welcome from the Summer University crew.
Accepted Summer University students will receive an email to apply for housing of various types and costs offered by CBS. Accommodation is available for international exchange students taking the “Ordinary Courses”, but is not available for students taking the “Short Courses”. Students participating in the “Short Courses” will have to explore alternate housing arrangements (e.g,. Airbnb, etc.).
