Hello,

Oktober has passed and we have entered November, which means that the rain has started to fall and the wind is heavier than ever. On the other hand, Christmas is not far away!

Since this semester has an extremely slow pace for me my weekdays have been filled with harmony (and unreasonably many hours in front of the TV). However the end of this semester is coming closer, which means that it´s soon time for exams. I am currently working with a project that is due on Monday so this post might be one of the boring kind.

A couple of weeks ago I was asked to answer some questions regarding CBS and Copenhagen for a Swedish organization at CBS. I think it could be interesting to some if I posted them again (or just due to lack of creativity), this time in English. Here we go!
1. What are you studying at CBS?
I am at my third year of the Bachelor Business Administration Culture and Language, with Spanish as my chosen language.
2. According to you, what is the best part of your program?
I would say that the best part of my program is its range of areas, such as pure economic courses, economy courses from a political and socialtal perspective and since we study language, some courses discusses economic development in the areas where our chosen language is spoken. I think this is very useful since it enable us to apply general facts in several real life settings to gain perspective.

3. Why did you chose to apply to CBS?
At my final time of High School I was quite confused regarding what and where I wanted to study in the future. I was leaning towards something regarding economy in order to get a deeper understanding. My interest towards CBS began when people in my surrounding started to talk about CBS, its good rumor and the fact that it offers a wide range of programs. During my gap year I travelled to Copenhagen several times and I truly fell in love with the city and its atmosphere. Thereafter, I found a program that suited me perfectly and so CBS became the obvious choice for me.
4. Do you have any tips or recommendations for new students that wants to start CBS
1) Visit Copenhagen before you make up your mind. It is of course important to feel comfortable with your choice of school since you will (probably) spend a lot of hours there during the upcoming years. However, its the city you will live in, experience and explore! Therefore I believe it might be even more important to feel that Copenhagen is a city you want to live in.

2) CBS offers a lot of Bachelor programs, which enables students to find a program that suits them the best. I would really recommend you as a future CBS student to compare programs at the CBS webpage (http://www.cbs.dk/en/study/bachelor/compare-programmes) in order to find one that suits you and your interests.

3) When you have received your acceptance letter, start looking for a place to live – it´s quite difficult!
5. What are the benefits of studying in Copenhagen?
For me Copenhagen itself is the main advantage! The city has a lot to offer all year around. The international environment is also very nice to be around. Both CBS and Copenhagen offers a mixture of different nationalities, which results in a fun mixture and a relaxed environment.
6. What is your best Copenhagen tip?
It´s difficult to only chose one since it exist a lot of great things to experience in Copenhagen. However, for me, it has to be something associated with food. Either the food truck market in Kødbyen (only open during approx. April-September), Papirøen (open all year around) or Torvehallerne (also open all year around).
