Management Philosophy Group Day Conference

MPP researchers in the management philosophy group present their current research in an open forum

Wednesday, January 28, 2009 - 09:00 to 17:00

 Researchers in the Management Philosophy Group are concerned with drawing on the various resources of philosophy to comprehend and criticise management in many different ways. On Wednesday 28 January 2009 members of the group will present their current research in an open forum to which members of Copenhagen Business School and the general public are invited. This day conference will represent some of the work taking place in the group and will give a sense of both the diversity of the research done and also what unites the project of seeking philosophically informed understandings of management.
