What is CBS Students?

November 24, 2011  //  By:   //  ON CAMPUS  //  No Comment

CBS Students is the student Union at CBS and the only one working actively with student volunteers and staff at every level of influence and decision making at CBS and on a national level. Our dearest ambition is to improve conditions for students, and insure that we have a say in the decisions effecting our education. We facilitate a network of dynamic and passionate students, that can share experiences, inspire, and assiststudy board members in their daily work.

For instane, for any questions that study board member might have, we have a full time secretariat ready to assist. When a challenge is met in the study board, or negotiations break down, we have the capacity to take issues to a higher level through our members in the Academic council and at the Board of CBS. Our leadership also has frequent meetings and direct access to the top leadership of CBS on a weekly basis. At those meetings, any issues raised by students, and particularly our study board members, are brought up and dealt with. We also seek to arm you in your study board work, by developing your competences through a series of coaching seminars.  Additionally, CBS Students helps finance and organize the other student bodies at CBS including the various study boards, the academic council, the board of directors, and works closely with popular clubs.

The Structure

CBS Students is organised into a board of directors and a presidency, supported by a professionally run secretariat with two full-time employees. The CBS Students board of directors works strategically with the coordinated effort of all students to better the conditions at CBS and holds the responsibility of determing the long term strategy of CBS and overseeing the general project agenda. Meanwhile, within the organization of CBS Students there is a president and vice president. They represent the organisation on a daily basis with the responsibility for political issues, organisational development, project coordination in collaboration with volunteers, and many other challenging tasks. Being a president or vice-president is a full-time job, with symbolic economic compensation. President and Vice President work full time while still continuing their studies. It is the most difficult position in CBS Students, representing 16,000 students and maintaining a budget of DKK 2 million.
