CBS and my courses

In this week's entry, I will tell you briefly what has been keeping me busy academically whilst here in Copenhagen. The natural starting point is the courses I have been attending at CBS. I have four courses a week, each session is two and a half hours including two short five to ten minute breaks. I fortunately only have one course which starts at 8am the other three courses are all at reasonable times of day. The major differences I find at CBS vs EBS is that we have less face time here with the lecturers, larger classes and more pre-reading for each class. Currently each of my courses have on average 50 pages of reading per session.

In addition, the course that I have chosen each have a practical element to them, which is primarily what attracted me to the courses. However there are purely theory based course available for those students who prefer that. An example of the practical element in one of my courses, “Business Plan Writing for Social Enterprises”, is we have been assigned an external coach to help us develop our business plan and we are also writing a business plan that can be put into action. So real world contacts, budgets, funding options and business models. My group is writing a business plan on Bio-gas production for domestic use in Sub-Saharan Africa. We are striving to strike a balance between the positive social benefits which the social enterprise needs to deliver and the financial sustainability that the social enterprise requires to optimize the scale of its social impact. Motivation, enthusiasm and commitment are all present in our group and the group dynamics are functioning well, so I am looking forward to our final result.
