    no visits by the opposite gender But I have heard that they are not strict and the trains stops at 12 and starts in the morning so the time rule is okay What electives are you taking and do you like them I am doing four different marketing courses all of them have a different take on the Japanese market One is about marketing strategy in Japan another is about the consumers in Japan I also take Intercultural Business Management and Human Resource Management in Japan which are very relevant for my study program at CBS I also have Japanese and East Asian Business Environment which is focused on social entrepreneurship in Asia My favorite course is Creative Industries in Global Markets where we learn about industries like music and fashion There is a midterm in almost every course and you have to participate at every class The exams are different some are assignments others presentation What are the biggest differences between CBS and Rikkyo The biggest difference is the structure of the classes because at CBS we are around 150 160 students at one lecture whereas at Rikkyo we are only in average 40 students I believe that you learn more from the Japanese structure and it is easier to engage with the professor Furthermore the structure demands that you have done your homework otherwise it is difficult to participate I also feel responsible to come prepared to class because I am a part of making the class interesting and the professor is counting on my inputs At CBS it is easier to hide behind the computer and it is difficult for the professor to engage with the students due to the large classes Source Nick Christiansen What have been your coolest experiences so far I think the time when I snuck my way into a fashion show and even managed to smuggle my brother and his girlfriend into the show as well The show was only for people with an invitation and it is was a part of Tokyo Fashion week Sometimes you just have to play the foreigner card and the Do you speak English card miscommunication can sometimes be your friend Another cool experience was when I meet a Japanese businessman in the metro we were both drunk and stopped at the same station We went out for more alcohol and he kept calling his girlfriend to tell her about his new Gajin foreign friend Why should other CBS student go to Japan for exchange How many times in your life do you get the chance to live in one of the world s biggest cities and attend one of the best university in the country The university is perfect and the city is out of this world Everything is so different but in the best possible way You go drinking beer while feeding a penguin or go hiking in the mountains or shop around for the newest fashion all in Tokyo You won t believe

    spend money on buying drinkable water as well as proper toilet drainage so that sewage no longer seeped down to the kitchen floor of the orphanage You face such different situations and difficulties which you would never think about back home For example we wanted to take the children to the city to go up a tower for a view of Nairobi from above but then realized how do you take a group of children with no shoes to a tower in the city said Anders But despite not having much the children were always smiling and welcoming to foreigners Much like kids in Denmark they were always playing and loved playing football together after school Some of the cultural challenges that you learn to overcome and may even learn to love are bartering for everything you buy from food to taxi rides and knowing that you have probably been ripped off once twice or most times you have bought something Traveling also becomes an experience by using matatus which are vans filled with a probably unsafe amount of seats that you can hop onto on the street and quite possibly hang out of holding on for dear life if all the seats are full If you re lucky you can even get on a pimped out matatu with Bob Marley or disco themes The food also takes some getting used to since most foods are very heavy and filling and consist of maize which the children get sponsored for lunch at school beans meat and rice But as Anders said if he was offered some Chapati s today thick pancakes usually served with beans he would not say no The fresh fruit you can find from many street vendors everywhere is also a bonus Source Anders Dalgaard Petersen There is also the social element of an internship abroad that makes it so much more enjoyable One of the reasons Anders wanted to participate in an AIESEC exchange was not only to experience local life in Kenya first hand but also to meet other students from abroad to learn about their cultures Living in an intern house with about 8 10 international people as volunteers came and left they also lived with a local father who knew everything there was to know about the area cooking for the interns as well Receiving local advice and having friends to travel with allowed Anders to explore Kenya on the weekends visiting Nairobi Mombassa the Masai tribe in their local area an elephant orphanage giraffe centre an amazing safari and even taking the opportunity to ride an ostrich who knew you could do that Source Anders Dalgaard Petersen Apart from internships in volunteering and with NGO s AIESEC also offers internships throughout the world in various business interests such as marketing finance IT and engineering To find out more about participating in an AIESEC exchange or learning about available internships feel free to contact the local CBS chapter at cbs aiesec dk or

    There are many different suburbs each with their own charm and culture The people living here are very relaxed and easy going Everyone is really approachable and friendly which makes it a lot easier when you first arrive in a new country And even though we think we re a small country they love Danes mostly because of Crown princess Mary but still Have you had any difficulties with the language I had to get used to some of the Australian slang at first but once you get used to it it s really not that difficult Some of my lecturers are Indian and have a very strong accent which I found hilarious in the beginning but it gets kind of annoying in the long run Other than the weird accent now and then keeping up with the English is not an issue at all What is accommodation like Do you have to find your own or does the school offer housing I was told from friends back home that I should wait till I got here with finding accommodation which I m really glad I did The on campus accommodation is pretty good but it is also quite expensive compared to what you get I m renting a big room in an 8 bedroom house in a great location for approximately the same price as the on campus housing I fell in love with one of the more expensive ones however you can easily find accommodation that is cheaper as long as you re willing to compromise on the quality I attended a couple of viewings that didn t match the description AT ALL so I would definitely recommend to wait until you get here with finding a room What electives are you taking and do you like them I m taking Strategic Human Resource Management and Entrepreneurship and Buyer Behavior as electives I don t really like my lecturer in the first elective but the unit itself is really interesting and my tutorial teacher is great so I do feel that I m gaining new knowledge Buyer Behavior is by far my favorite unit here the lecturer is great she manages to make it both fun and educational What are the biggest differences between CBS and Swinburne The fact that we have a tutorial for every lecture and that you have to engage actively in class discussions And then of course the grading system it s not like CBS where the final exam is worth 100 here it s distributed over the semester Sophie exploring New Zealand What have been your coolest experiences so far River rafting and snowboarding in New Zealand Over the mid semester break I went to the South Island of New Zealand for 9 days and it was the best vacation ever Beautiful and unspoiled landscape everywhere We went white river rafting one of the days and it was the coolest experience I ve had during my semester except for surfing which is so
