CBS, Copenhagen Business School, is known as the institution of higher education which requires the highest grade average to be accepted to some of the most prestigious educations in Denmark. This especially concerns International Business which has flown off the charts and requires an average of 12.3 on the Danish grading scale to get in. But the new shipping bachelor program is also among the programs which are the most difficult to get into, because the required grade average is among the highest in Denmark.

The program, which was offered for the first time last fall, requires an average this year of 10.9, which is slightly lower than last year, where the average stood at 11.3.
