Centre for Business History

Research page

On the pages linked to the right you can find the projects, which researchers at the Centre for Business History are currently - or have previously been engaged in. Some projects are for a Danish speaking audience.

The Centre for Business History at Copenhagen Business School (CBS) was established in 1999 in order to strengthen the historical dimension of CBS research and teaching.

The Centre for Business History faculty conducts methodologically and theoretically based research into the historical development of the modern enterprise and its business environment. In this, the enterprise is examined within its economic, political, social, conceptual, cultural and institutional context. The results of the research are communicated to the research community as well as to the public.

The objectives of the Centre’s activities are:

  • to contribute to the understanding of the modern enterprise as an actor and driving force in economic development
  • to afford a greater insight into the internal dynamics of the modern enterprise in its interaction with the environment
  • to improve the understanding of the importance of the general societal development, national and international, to the development of the modern enterprise.

To achieve this, both Danish and foreign developments are analysed in a comparative perspective through studies of individual enterprises, industries and sectors, as well as the business community in general.
