It is with great sadness that the Board of NUAS informs the NUAS community of the passing of Niels Henrik Larsen, Director of CBS International Office, and dedicated member of NUAS.
Niels Henrik passed away November 15 due to cancer.
Niels Henrik started his career at CBS in 1999 in the International office, became deputy director in 2008 and was appointed Director of the International office at CBS in 2018. Niels Henrik was very passionate about international education and student affairs, offering students at CBS valuable experience through studying abroad and used innovative methods to get students and staff involved.
Niels Henrik´s other passion was NUAS. He was very committed to our Nordic network and contributed greatly through his leadership in the International group along with taking a seat on the NUAS Board representing group leaders. Niels Henrik was part of the NUAS Forum 2019 executive board and made a valued contribution to its success.
Niels Henrik was a “people person” who enjoyed networking, creating new relations and enhancing students´ experience. He was also an “ildsjæl” who inspired others and had the talent of pointing out different perspectives of a matter which led to common understanding and solutions.
The news of Niels Henrik has brought a great response from the NUAS community where he is remembered for his commitment and work within NUAS and his kind person and warmth.
The NUAS board and community would like to extend their sincere condolences to Niels Henrik´s family and daughter, his colleagues at CBS and NUAS friends.
He will be greatly missed.
Bless the memory of Niels Henrik Larsen
