Danish Society for Education and Business (DSEB) ScholarshipDSEB logo

The ties between Danish Society for Education and Business (DSEB) and CBS go back more than 100 years, when DSEB founded Denmark’s first school of commerce which became the basis for the CBS we know today.

DSEB’s main purpose is to support the education of a highly skilled workforce with the right set of qualifications to the benefit of Danish companies and the Danish society as such. Through the Full-time MBA Programme, DSEB gives students from a broad range of countries the opportunity to study in Denmark.

DSEB believes that attracting students from abroad brings long-term value to the Danish business environment. CBS’s Full-time MBA Programme has a proven track record of enabling students to find employment and stay in Denmark when they have attained their diploma. DSEB is proud to be part of this.

Waldemar Schmidt has spent a considerable part of his career overseas and strongly believes in coupling Scandinavian leadershp with an international mindset in a business setting. The Waldemar Schmidt Scholarship supports young professionals in their international leadership development.
