The Centre for Business History was established in 1999 with the objective to strengthen the historical dimension in CBS research and teaching.
Today, it consists of 14 people (nine permanent contract, two PhDs, three Assistant Prof. and PostDocs) that share a keen interest in the way history contributes to a better understanding of society and business. As historians at a business university, we focus on business in society. We do this in the broadest possible sense and with an ideal of openness with respect to theoretical approaches and topics.
The Centre is an integrated part of CBS of its research and teaching infrastructure, and, by its international peers, the Centre is regarded as an experimenting and creative major research environment.
