Center for Corporate Governance
About the Center
The Center for Corporate Governance (CCG) was founded January 1st, 2005 by a grant from Copenhagen Business School. Corporate governance is defined as “the control and direction of companies” by ownership, boards, incentive systems and other mechanisms. The Center for Corporate Governance (CCG) is a virtual forum for the advancement of knowledge in this area, connecting researchers from several departments and institutions inside as well as outside Copenhagen Business School.
CCG is comprised of researchers in economics, accounting, finance, law, and management as well as business people, auditors and government officials. We organize research projects, workshops, conferences, doctoral education and seminars.
The center is headed by a managing director, Lars Ohnemus, and supervised by a supervisory board composed of representatives from participating CBS departments. In addition, the center receives guidance on long-term strategic issues from a business advisory board made up of members from the Danish business community.
