The Board of Directors is the highest level of authority and influence at CBS. The tasks of the representatives are very challenging; therefore only one student seat is opened for election every year. Consequently there is always one experienced student on the board and loss of knowledge is avoided.
Members of the Board of Directors: Top representatives from the Danish business community, faculty and administrative personal and two students representatives
Number of seats up for election: 1 seat, elected for a two-year period
Responsibilities of the board: The board decides on the long-term general strategy of CBS, the budget approval and the development of the university in general. The board can setup different workgroups to handle or investigate certain initiatives, where student seats are usually included. Moreover, the Board is in charge of appointing the president of CBS and insuring close ties between the school and the business community.
