the cbs network book 2013/14 student society & organisations


“Even this book was made by volunteers” More than six months ago, our team of volunteers started working on this book. Making it happen was full of challenges: tough decisions, tight deadlines and many interesting discussions. It has been an exciting and educational process, and with the result in hand, it is clear that all the hard work was worth it! In showcasing the many organisations to be found at and around CBS, our hope is to inspire you to see that you shouldn’t hesitate to join one of them, or even start your own, because they are all run by students just like you! I wish to thank all the volunteers who have contributed to this book; your enthusiasm and commitment make you inspiring to work with. All of your organisations make CBS richer as a university and you give so much to your fellow students. With this book, I hope that we manage to get even more CBS students engaged in extracurricular activities in the future! Sincerely, Kirsten Weibrecht Kristensen Project Manager

INTRODUCTION You are now one step closer to getting involved in extracurricular activities at CBS What you are holding in your hands is a catalogue of all the student-run organisations and societies on campus. It is these organisations that arrange all activities on campus. By engaging in extra-curricular activities, you actively enrich your time at CBS: You will get new friends from other programmes, increase your practical experience, and have a lot of fun. CBS Students Network consists of all student organisations on campus. We work together to engage even more students in extracurricular activities. We hope you will join in. If you have any hobby or professional interest, which does not appear in this book – don’t despair. Swing by our student union CBS Students Office, and we will help you create your own student organisation - and then CBS WILL ALSO HAVE SOMETHING FOR YOU!

On behalf of CBS Students Network,

Philip Hardø President CBS Students


3 REASONS TO BECOME A VOLUNTEER Hundreds of students daily commit themselves to volunteer activities to make life at CBS more fun. Perhaps you haven’t noticed, but some of the biggest and coolest events at CBS are entirely planned, developed and executed by active student volunteers. The CBS Case Competition, the yearly University Election, wine tastings, movie showings, guest-speaker seminars and sustainability workshops. These are all volunteer activities. Though all of this might seem a bit extraordinary and beyond your personal capabilities – after all we do have to study – we strongly recommend all students to engage in volunteer activities. Most of the volunteer jobs at CBS are very flexible and can easily be combined with an already busy student calendar. Though you will not get paid, you needn’t worry – voluntary work is one of the best investments you will ever make.



Priceless Experience


Fantastic Network


CV Value


First of all, the activities and projects that you will engage in are guaranteed to give you a lot of practical experience. This is priceless for your theoretical and academic background as a student. Having experience in tasks such as marketing, project leadership, fundraising, event planning and others, will give you extremely valuable experience in the future. In short, being a volunteer teaches you something the world’s best education can’t teach you.

By being a volunteer, you will meet awesome people, people that are very likely to help you, not just with the student life, but also with future career plans and other problems you might encounter. You will develop new friendships and your network will increase as you become part of the vibrant, active and international student volunteer environment at CBS.

Committing yourself to voluntary work will give you an advantage over your peers when applying for jobs. Employers value the volunteer spirit as it tells them something about your personal character, your “can do” mentality and your ambition to learn and develop. Choosing to work without being paid says a lot about a person’s values and interests, and employers are eager to work with this kind of person.

Friends and Fun

Every year in Week 9, CBS Case Competition (CCC) hosts one of the most prestigious international case competitions in the world – right here at CBS! How to enjoy it To share the excitement of CCC with all CBS students, we arrange events, workshops and freebies throughout Week 9 in collaboration with our sponsors. Keep an eye out for the event postings and our week program and mark your calendars already – this week is not something you want to miss! How to participate If you want to challenge yourself and think this case competition concept sounds like fun – you also have the opportunity to participate in our Beat the Elite competition. Running parallel to CCC, it provides all students the opportunity to solve the CCC case. You form your own team of four people, sign up, solve the case in 24 hours and compete for the 1st prize against teams from all over Scandinavia. How to get involved The organization behind CCC is driven and managed entirely by 30 highly motivated top students on a voluntary basis. These 30 students form the Organizing Committee and are recruited each year in April, after which they spend 10 months planning, promoting and fundraising for this spectacular week. If you have what it takes – remember to claim your spot next year!


Have you ever wanted to match wits with your fellow students in a setting that won’t result in a bar brawl? How about discussing major political, philosophical or moral ideals in a setting that allows for proper exploration of the ideas? What we do Copenhagen Business School Debating Society is an organization for those interested in discussion and debate. While the ultimate goal for some of our members is to be world class debaters, we also foster a strong local community of those who like our weekly informal practice debates. We practice once a week with workshops, speeches, and tactics usually resulting in a debate to close off the practice. We have discussed whether: terrorism can be justified, gender quotas should be implemented in public offices, if “We” are more important than “I”, and whether single-sex schools are good for education.


Benefits of joining Suffice to say, debate offers many benefits. Simply by watching debates, you can raise your critical thinking abilities and even more so once you actually start formulating arguments yourself. By delivering short speeches in English once a week, you will also gain a mastery of the English language as well as strong public speaking skills (just think of how easy your next oral exam will be, or as prep for your thesis defence). To join, please visit our Facebook page, and attend our next practice!

For years, Stardust CBS has been the first stop for students on their entrepreneurial journey. The student-driven organization was founded in 2005 by a group of students with the aim of strengthening the entrepreneurial environment at CBS. WHAT WE DO Stardusts works to pave the way for new innovative approaches to improving the entrepreneurial environment at CBS. Our main initiative is a membership-based talent network launched in the Spring of 2013, in collaboration with Stardust’s partner student organizations at DTU, KU, ITU, AAU and RUC, connected through Gate to Create - an umbrella organization for entrepreneurship studentorganizations at Danish universities. Our collaborative initiative, “Future Entrepreneurs of Denmark” (FED), allows us to strengthen the entrepreneurial environment beyond the limits of the individual universities. JOIN THE NETWORK Learn to skillfully realize economic potential of business ideas through a talent-network membership. On a semesterly basis, 50 students from the 6 universities are admitted into the talent network. The resulting mix of student backgrounds provides access to a enormously diverse pool of skills and academic expertise for network members to tap into when solving cases on exclusive professional partner workshops, such as with McKinsey and Graduateland.

Students within the humanities and social sciences have asked themselves exactly how they can use their education to solve real life problems once they graduate from university. Furthermore, the business world does not know how to employ the vast number of students emerging from these fields either, and universities are caught in the middle, trying to bridge high educational standards and applicability. Case Competition - Connecting the Humanities and Social Sciences with the Business World Suitable for Business hosts a humanistic case competition in March, which serves as a meeting point for students, universities and the business world. Participating teams come from all over Scandinavia, with around 300 people in attendance in the past. The business world provides a case, universities provide relevant research-based key-note speeches that give students perspectives on their own competencies, and students create solutions to the case using their educational backgrounds.


Benefits of participating From this, students will experience that their knowledge is applicable, universities get students capable of solving real world issues using their education, and the business world sees the unique competencies of humanities and social sciences students. Suitable for Business gives back business a human face. Background Suitable for Business started as a student initiative at CBS in 2010 and now operates across all Copenhagen-based universities. There are also continual events throughout the year.
