PhD Programmes

The objective of the CBS PhD school is to create an active national and international high quality research environment as a framework for the development of all PhD students as researchers at CBS. This framework should help CBS PhD students to create new knowledge in their respective field of research and to succeed after graduation either in a professional academic research career or in a professional career outside of academia, meaning in private firms or public institutions, where their sophisticated research skills are in high demand.


CBS LAW is part of the CBS PhD school. CBS LAW is in charge of the PhD fellows affiliated with CBS LAW. See a list of PhD fellows under the menu option 'staff'.

The purpose of CBS LAWs PhD programme is to cater to the university sector as well the business sector and society in general.

A PhD fellow must, by way of independent research, write a PhD thesis adhering to high academic and methodological standards. Usually, the programme includes an extended stay at a foreign university and participation in various research courses.

CBS LAW is also a member of the Danish Legal Research Education Programme (Jurforsk). The purpose of JurForsk is both to ensure that the legal research programmes in Denmark are of a high standard and to promote increased internationalization by widening the participating institutions’ international networks. JurForsk’s course programme offers both basic and specialized courses.
