The CBS Leadership Centre gathers and mobilises research and teaching power within the leadership area across CBS departments and programmes. It is an effort of tying things together, reaching out to business professionals and society, and inspiring brave collective actions to exploit new opportunities and solve societal challenges.


Leadership is the purposeful and balanced capacity to make things occur that would otherwise not happen. By setting direction, involving people, and distributing executing power, leadership is key to value creation and well-being in companies and organisations. In order to answer complex societal challenges and big questions, excellent and responsible leadership is necessary across fields and disciplines.

Combining business economics with a deep understanding of societal challenges, CBS equips present and future leaders to set direction and create responsible results through others and in collaboration. CBS Leadership Centre is a window to leadership knowledge and programmes at CBS. It will become a continuously updated meeting place for leaders and leadership development in Denmark and beyond. We aim at inspiring interaction between researchers and leadership practitioners in organisations of every kind, big or small, private or public, old or new, local or global.
