Profile picture Lubinski

Christina Lubinski is professor at the Department of Business Humanities and Law at Copenhagen Business School. Her research and teaching focuses on entrepreneurship in society. She is the principal investigator of the Carlsberg Foundation Semper Ardens Advance grant "Rethinking Entrepreneurship in Society". The project group studies entrepreneurship as a discourse and model for social action, drawing on the business humanities and law for novel approaches. What is the influence of entrepreneurship beyond the marketplace? And how does our understanding of entrepreneurship influence approaches to social inequality, the future of work, and other big societal challenges? For details and updates about the project, see Rethinking Entrepreneurship and our profile on LinkedIn.

Christina has published in leading journals in both management (Strategic Management Journal, Organization Studies, Family Business Review) and business history (Business History Review, Business History, Enterprise & Society). Her monograph Navigating Nationalism in Global Enterprise appeared with Cambridge University Press. She has won the John F. Mee Award for best paper in history at the Academy of Management (2023), Henrietta Larson Award (2015) and Oxford Journals Article Prize (2013) as well as several teaching awards. She is editor-in-chief of Business History (AJG 4) and serves on the advisory boards of the Ahlers Center for International Business, Knauss School of Business, University of San Diego and of the Erasmus-funded master program "GLOCAL: Global Markets, Local Creativities", at the universities of Glasgow, Rotterdam and Barcelona.
