Department of Management, Society and Communication
Five different research environments (two of which are also Centres under the Department) constitute the primary internal anchorages (with partly overlapping memberships) for MSC’s researchers and their projects. Each of the environments has created a dedicated and internationally recognised research agenda, which in turn informs and drives the department’s teaching agenda.
Communication, Organisation and Governance (COG)
(Coordinators: Professor Dan Kärreman & Assistant Professor Verena Girschik)
The cluster brings together a diverse group of international scholars who focus their research activities on
- organizational dynamics, management practices, governance structures and forms of communication and discourse in both private and public organizations and
- the variety of social, cultural, economic and/or political contexts in which these sets of activities and organizations intersect and interact, in particular global and intercultural contexts

The research cluster members focus on:
- Language, learning & intercultural issues at the micro level in firms and other professional organisations
- The construction, communication and learning of identity and difference

Communication in Markets

The Centre for Business and Development Studies (CBDS)
(Director: Professor Stefano Ponte)
The centre’s research revolves around the challenges conditioned by the switch in recent decades to more business and market-led development thinking and practices, notably:
- Business strategic reorientation in the wake of the gradual integration of developing countries into the global economy and the concomitant potential for e.g. global corporate restructuring and outsourcing
- Development strategy reorientation toward private sector development and international business partnerships.

(Director: Professor Lars Thøger Christensen)
The research centre is committed to critically investigate business in society issues and integrating the corporate citizen perspective into business theory and practice and into the CBS curriculum. Working across disciplinary boundaries, the centre constitutes an innovative space for interaction and reflections between academia and business in Denmark and abroad.
