A true leader in his field

R. Edward Freeman new Adjunct Professor


CBS has appointed R. Edward Freeman Adjunct Professor. He will be associated with the Center for Corporate Values and Responsibility, anchored at the Department of Intercultural Communication and Management.

Research and teaching in top class

Dr Freeman is one of the world’s leading authorities in business ethics with an impressive publication record, and he has received numerous awards both for his research and his teaching.

"His landmark book on stakeholder management made a fundamental difference to the way that we think about and theorize the corporation, its strategies, and its social roles and responsibilities.  It is one of the most widely cited, and certainly the most influential text to have emerged out of the business and society field to date," says Mette Morsing, Associate Professor at the Department of Intercultural Communication and Management.
