From January 2023, CBS got a department with a new name, Department of Business Humanities and Law, which replaces Department of Management, Politics and Philosophy. Business Humanities has a notable two-fold character that is especially vital today. It defines a domain of knowledge concerning the major challenges facing humanity that affect both business and the wider society. It also seeks to cultivate the human capabilities to meet these challenges.

The department is organized in three academic units:

Entrepreneurship, Ethics and Leadership

Governance, Culture and Learning




BHL's premises are located at Porcelænshaven 18B, Frederiksberg and you can find us
on 1, 2, 3 and 4 floor in the building.
