Happiness is what we all aspire for, and Denmark – the world’s second happiest country – certainly has many things to make its citizens and visitors happy. For starters, Denmark offers one of the world’s top working environments where work-life balance and self-development are encouraged. Denmark enjoys a high level of safety as well.
Living in Copenhagen – Denmark’s capital city – is another reason to be happy, as Matthew Nichols, Head of International Delivery at cBrain — a software company listed on NASDAQ OMX Nordic — and Copenhagen Business School Full-time MBA Class of 2020 graduate, can attest to. “Copenhagen is consistently ranked one of the most liveable cities in the world,” the American graduate says. “The ease of getting to the airport and direct flights to so many places in Europe is also a huge plus. There is also some beautiful nature not far outside the city.” Nichols relocated to Denmark for the programme, found a lot to like and stayed on to forge a career here.
For Indian national Prajakta Patil, a Class of 2020 MBA graduate who is now a Product Marketing Manager for Airtame – which creates a screen sharing device for schools and businesses – she is attracted to Copenhagen’s working culture rooted in equity, balance and minimalism.

However, what truly sets Copenhagen Business School apart from many international Business Schools is their “triple crown” accreditation from The Associate to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), The Association of MBA (AMBA) and European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS). Just 1% of business schools worldwide have earned this highly prestigious accreditation for the high quality of their business programmes, teaching and faculty quality, and student’s capabilities, making Copenhagen Business School’s MBA qualification a valuable one for future business aspirants.
“The Copenhagen MBA integrates principles of corporate sustainability seamlessly into its curriculum. I have met different companies pioneering sustainability in Denmark and this gave me great insight into how the concepts traverse from theory to practice. I cherish this opportunity to experience the applicability of corporate sustainability concepts hands on,” says Class of 2020 Indian graduate Basabdutta Rose, now a Contract Manager at Cadeler, a key supplier within the offshore wind industry for installation services, operations and maintenance works.
Indeed, the Copenhagen Full-Time MBA (FTMBA) – an internationally recognised qualification – touches upon the famous Scandinavian business model of ethical decision-making, social responsibility and green agenda that have shaped many sustainable business practices.
In fact, sustainability is big in Copenhagen, owing to Denmark’s long …….
