CBS a great place Past Review

By (International Business., University of Hawaii - Manoa) for

Copenhagen Business School: Copenhagen - Direct Enrollment & Exchange

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
Yes it was. The education was not worth while in the classroom, but the life experiences were. I had a great time at the school and with all of the international people that I met. The UH Manoa business counselors are not very informed on anything so you have to go and figure out things for yourself. I had to track down people and get any questions answered that I had that had gone on the trip before.

Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

Workload was not bad at all. However, the entire grade for the semester was just based off of a final exam. This could be too much pressure for some people.

* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

Everything seemed to be in order. I had no complaints at all about antyhing while at the program.

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

I stayed on campus at Porceleshlaven. This was a great place to stay. You have a private room with full kitchen. You share a bathroom, and you have only one suite-mate. These dorms were close to a huge park, shops, the metro, and classrooms. Stay here if at all possible.

* Food:

Not very many options over the summer. Go and buy groceries. The food is incredibly expensive.

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

Drinking, Clubbing, Travel. Repeat

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

Very safe and friendly city. I loved my experience.

If you could do it all over again would you choose the same program? No

(1 = not very easy/$200+ on food & personal expenses/week, 2.5 = $100/week, 5 = very easily/minimal cost)

A Look Back
