Department of Organization

We pursue a problem-oriented, business-in-society approach to understanding and intervening in organizations and organizational life. Our research is focused upon organizing processes and their outcomes from an interdisciplinary social-scientific perspective.

The Department of Organization's (IOA) research and teaching focus on organizational and managerial processes in private, public and voluntary organizations. We address everyday dynamics in organizations as well as societal challenges from an organizational point of view. Our goal is to create new knowledge about organizations, organizing and the organized, which is both of practical use, questions taken-for-granted myths and sets the agenda.

The Department of Organization contributes to the organization and management teaching on all levels of the CBS degree programmes. We also deliver teaching on HRM, project management, organizational psychology, strategy and qualitative methods.

"Understanding organizations and organizing processes has never been more important. Our research addresses both the tensions and changing patterns of modern organizations and the everyday dynamics and challenges of doing things together."

- Signe Vikkelsø, Head of Department, IOA
