The Nordic Nine

The Nordic Nine is a set of nine transformative capabilities that balance the advancement of the individual with responsibilities that stretch beyond business and into society. The capabilities interweave the many views inside CBS while clearly distinguishing CBS from the majority of other business schools in the world.

The purpose of The Nordic Nine initiative is that all graduates from CBS possess the transformative skills described in The Nordic Nine which are a part of CBS’ strategy. The goal is that all graduates from CBS in 2024 have engaged in research based learning processes that develop The Nordic Nine skills, including the special management skills that are characteristic of the Nordic model, and which is essential for CBS’ ambition to be a part of leading the necessary transformations in business and society. The revised competency profiles of the study programs are applicable for the enrollments in 2021.
