CBS appoints honorary doctorates in 2014
By Matilde Hørmand-Pallesen
Again this year CBS awarded selected professors with the highest academic degree, an honorary doctorate. The degree is conferred to researchers who have made distinguished contributions of significant scientific merit.
Honorary doctorates in 2014:
- Darrell Duffie, Dean Witter Distinguished Professor of Finance, Stanford Graduate School of Business, nominated by the CBS Department of Finance
- Henry Hansmann, Oscar M. Ruebhausen Professor of Law, Yale Law School, nominated by the CBS Department of International Economics and Management
- Peter Miller, Professor of Management Accounting, London School of Economics, nominated by the CBS Department of Operations Management
In addition to honouring the researchers, CBS creates a stronger relationship with the honorees. Researchers are often chosen because their field is of great relevance to CBS’ own research, consequently forming a basis for important scientific sparring.
CBS departments propose possible nominees for conferment of an honorary degree. The Senor Management Board then selects who should be submitted for final approval by the Academic Council.
The appointments, which took place on 21 March 2014, comprised a lecture by each professor and a conferment ceremony at the annual CBS banquet.
