CBS research profile

CBS' research profile covers a broad subject area within the social sciences and humanities. The academic breadth reflects a societal need to understand business issues in a broader social, political and cultural context. Furthermore, the academic breath is a prerequisite for CBS to underpin CBS’ broad portfolio of research based educational programmes.


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.

Diversity, Creativity and Innovation
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.
