Definition of alumni from CBS
Alumni from CBS are defined by holding a degree from CBS or having been an exchange student who has completed at least one semester (or 15 ECTS points) at CBS, meaning:
- Diploma holders (HD part II)
- Executive masters (continuing education)
- Exchange students (who have completed a semester at CBS)
Are you not sure, whether you qualify as alumni? Please contact CBS Alumni at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As we wish to see as many alumni on campus as possible, Alumni Day is exclusively for alumni from CBS. It is therefore not possible to bring a guest for this event.
I cannot find my study programme on the list
If you cannot find the name of your study programme on the list when registering for Alumni Day, please contact CBS Alumni at email@example.com.
Price and payment
The participation fee of DKK 350.- for Alumni Day includes a day of interesting concurrent talks by some of CBS’ brightest minds, live music, scrumptious food and drinks and much more. CBS contributes financially to the event but due to the size of this event, part of the costs is covered by your participant fee.
Please note that when registering online, a credit card transaction fee may be added and must be covered by the card holder.
Why we ask for your date of birth, graduation year and study programme
We ask you to inform us of your date of birth, graduation year and study programme when you register for Alumni Day. This information will help CBS verify you as an alum. In case we need more information, we will contact you by email.
Graduation year and starting year
For different reasons, most alumni identify with the starting year of their studies at CBS, and not their graduation year. We ask you to inform us of your graduation year as we use this to verify your alumni status.
When registering for the event you will be offered to appear on the list of participants. The list will be made available when you have registered for the event. This list enables other alumni to see and search for lost friends. Please note that your email address will never show. You are welcome to change your selection of whether or not you want to appear on the list up until 8 May 2017. See how in your confirmation email.
