CBS was established in 1917 by the Danish Society for the Advancement of Business Education and Research (FUHU), however, it was not until 1920 that accounting became the first full study programme at CBS. Today CBS has more than 20,000 students, 2,000 employees and offers a wide range of undergraduate and graduate programmes within business, typically with an interdisciplinary and international focus.
