CBS expands network with new partner universities

by Silke Bochow

Cologne Business School began the year by signing three new cooperation agreements with universities in Taiwan, Thailand and Norway.

Soochow University, Taipei
Soochow University is a highly regarded private university with about 16,000 students and a very extensive network of international partners. Altogether and on 2 campus locations, it has 5 faculties with 23 study programs for BA and MA. The economics department in particular has a very good English-speaking course offer, and their Global Business Program is taught in English completely. The college offers very hands-on and interdisciplinary studies. Concurrently, international research partnerships are to be further developed. Not only for joint research purposes but also for faculty exchange programs, the following areas might be of interest for CBS: Finance, Green Science and Sustainability, Non-profit Organizational Management, Creative Cultural Industries and the Global Business Program.

The very green main campus with its own dormitories and excellently equipped Chinese Language Center is located in close proximity to the famous Shilin Night Market and National Palace Museum. The Business Faculty is located on the second campus directly in the center of Taipei, which should make the university very attractive to CBS students.More information can be found at:

Kasetsart University, Bangkok
The Kasetsart University in Bangkok is one of the biggest and most highly regarded universities (5th place) in Thailand with currently around 55,000 students on 4 campus locations. The first agricultural university and found approximately 70 years ago, today it is a full university and covers a wide range of programs including Agricultural Sciences, Economics, Humanities, Tourism and Engineering.

The university makes internationalization a top priority as the wide range of Business and Economics courses it offers are primarily taught in English. Our partnership agreement is with the Faculty of Economics, which offers a Bachelor of Arts programmein Entrepreneurial Economics with specialisations like â??Economics of Logisticsâ?? or â??Economics of Tourism and Hospitalityâ??. Yet thatâ??s not all; other faculties and departments open their doors for study to our students as well.

Our students will be studying at the main campus in Bangkok, which is adorned with all sorts of shops and restaurants.

Lillehammer University College, Norway
The Lillehammer University College in eastern Norway is a small school with currently about 5,000 students, all studying on a campus just outside of Lillehammer. As host of the 1994 Winter Olympic Games, winter sports are very important here in this region, which is also reflected in some courses where Sports Tourism is covered (e.g. Voluntarism and Leadership or Event Management). The relatively small, yet exciting range of English courses are geared toward those students studying Media or Tourism Management; however, ICM students should also be able to find something suitable as well.

CBS has signed an Erasmus+ agreement with the college, meaning that students and professors can take part in the exchange programmeas early as next semester.
