Department of Management, Society and Communication
Research focus at MSC
Multi- and interdisciplinary by design, the Department of Management, Society and Communication brings together scholarship within management, communication and the broader social sciences and humanities, studying organisations in global environments and the interaction and interdependencies of business, society and government.
Across research environments, much of MSC’s work revolves around the role and responsibilities of companies in the face of the grand challenges facing society. Crucially, this also involves examining the opportunities and mutual advantage for both sides when business adopts a more proactive stance in engaging these challenges.
MSC researchers collaborate with the many colleagues and research environments at CBS and internationally that in multiple ways connect to, complement and deepen MSC’s research. At CBS, MSC researchers contribute to the three BiS Platforms Diversity and Difference; Transformations (incl. Co-directorship); and Inequality (5-year CBS sponsored initiatives launched in 2018), and the joint secretariat of the three platforms is located at MSC. MSC staff also coordinates the cross-departmental CBS Africa Initiative.
