Degree Programmes

At Department of Business Humanities and Law (BHL) we consider teaching and research to go hand in hand. Our societal impact by having the privilege of educating young people is at least as powerful as publishing in top ranked journals.

At BHL a key concern is the constant challenge of learning spaces. This means not only developing new teaching methods for example through case-based learning initiatives. It also means committing to the rigorously critical thought and imaginative aspects of the liberal arts and social sciences when we place contemporary societal, managerial and organizational challenges on the curriculum. Ceasing the teaching opportunities of contemporary life means developing education programs that invite the surrounding world into the classroom by cooperating with professional partners that focus on the core dilemmas of the classical business disciplines through multi-framing and that engage seriously with student initiatives to strengthen the skills of independent thinking.

BHL has an extensive programme portfolio of which many have been been developed by us. Furthermore, the department is involved in teaching at many other CBS programmes and several of the department’s faculty serve as study or programme directors:
