Discovery Days

NIMS is excited to announce that our global annual conference, the Discovery Days, will be held in Copenhagen from the 9th – 12th of May.

Fellow NIMS members from WU Vienna, NHH and Bocconi will be hosted by NIMS CBS, and can expect four exciting days, discovering Copenhagen. The Discovery Days will be packed with keynote speeches, company workshops, fun activities and internal NIMS workshops – with the ultimate goal of strengthening our Global Network.
