MPP staff 2016

The department - in Danish known as Institut for Ledelse, Politik og Filosofi (LPF) - was formed in 1995 with the objective to undertake research and teaching in the management area understood in a broad sense (Management and Leadership). MPP has been characterised by its focus on problems surrounding management that can be observed in the boundary regions between business, politics, history and philosophy.

The Department in its present form is the result of a merger between MPP, CBS Law, the Civil Society group from DBP, and the Center for Leisure and Cultural Services, which took effect 1 July 2018.

Mission, vision, identity
MPP is an engaging and multi-disciplinary department, organized in four groups covering management and entrepreneurship; business history; politics, leadership and business philosophy. Our mission is to span from high level and internationally recognized theoretical research to engaged scholarship addressing the challenges facing our society concretely.

  • We participate actively in the epistemic communities of which we are part as well as in the public debate.
  • We combine a variety of teaching outlets to reach different target groups with our research.
  • We engage actively in the development of CBS through a variety of channels from institutional participation and external networking to education development and research work across department.
  • We welcome visitors for shorter and longer stays and encourage our faculty to participate in international collaboration.
