High education level

Good but more to be done
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

The university provides good infrastructures and facilities. More can be done in terms of teaching. Overall, I had a nice experience until now.

MSc. in Advanced Economics and Finance at CBS
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

The study program aims to provide a quantitative education within the fields of Economics and Finance and is therefore time-consuming and sometimes frustrating, as the concepts taught in class have a extremely high level of abstraction. But this is also one of the reasons why you will experience a steep learning curve and meet ambitious classmates.
