Department of Management, Society and Communication - Copenhagen Business School


Copenhagen Business School (CBS) is by national and international standards a strong institution with a distinctive ‘business university’ profile, with a very wide approach to business in society today. Established in 1917, CBS is one of the largest business schools in Europe. CBS has more than 600 full‐time researchers, and well over 20,000 students of whom 3,474 (2013) are international students from all over the world.

With the distinctiveness of its diversity, Copenhagen Business School aims to become a world‐leading business university with teaching and research excellence in classical management disciplines (including finance and economics, accounting and operations management, marketing, strategic management and organisation) and in disciplines that place business in a wider social, political and cultural context.

CBS has a particular responsibility to bring knowledge and new ideas to companies and business organisations, to the next generation of business leaders, and to society as a whole. Specifically, and drawing upon our North European background and history, we will play a major role in the discussion of innovative and entrepreneurial business models, sustainable organisational forms and economic practices within the perspective of responsible management and leadership. We will nurture an entrepreneurial spirit within our University, encouraging to new ideas, open to local initiative, and flexible in the face of new possibilities.
