The new shipping bachelor at the Copenhagen Business School, CBS, International Shipping & Trade, has gotten off to a flying start with its first student intake, and the new aspiring students needed a towering grade average to get in, according to new numbers from the Danish Ministry of Higher Education on the day when students across the country were notified about whether they got into their dream program.
And it looks like the new program has done a good job of selling itself to the young people, as the bachelor landed itself on the list of programs requiring the highest grade average. The 474 young people applying for the program needed to have an 11.3 grade average to get in. 241 listed International Shipping & Trade as their first priority, though only 24 got their wish fulfilled, which corresponds to a little over three percent of all applicants. According to the tally, two applicants have been given stand-by slots, which required a 10.5 grade average.
