Welcome Full-time MBA Class 2017-2018!
We are thrilled to be welcoming our Full-time MBA Class of 2017 to CBS. As always, the class is very diverse with 20 nationalities among 44 students adding a new country, Sri Lanka to the list. Their average age is 30 with an average of 7 years work experience.
"I am even more excited about the CBS MBA now that the program has started. Coming from a fairly homogenous engineering background, I find the diversity of the class exciting, and even a bit uncomfortable at times. But getting out of comfort i one of my main reasons for doing this MBA and hearing from alumni has reinforced my focus on embracing this diversity and learning from it", says Sigurdur Karlssom, an Icelandic engineer.
"I look forward to a year with new types of challenges and I am intent on using the year for not only learning but also self-understanding and self improvement. I also look forward to a year of nice weather in beautiful Copenhagen, but for some reason this view on climate is not shared by my classmates."
The class brings a wide variety of experience from different sectors and professions, and a quick glance over the class profiles reveals interesting backgrounds such as medicine, psychology, translation, pharmacology, art history and of course the more traditional engineering, finance and business backgrounds.
We wish them a great start to the MBA and look forward to meeting them at future alumni events.
