Louise Mors is a Professor of Strategic and International Management at the Copenhagen Business School and has also been on the faculty at the London Business School. She has a PhD from INSEAD in France and was a post-doc at the Sloan School at MIT. 

Before pursuing her academic career, Professor Mors worked as an independent management consultant. Among others, she advised the senior management of a large British media and communications firm on their e-business strategy and assisted the senior management of one of the largest industrial conglomerates in Europe to devise their growth strategy. Since 2015 she has been on the board of CfL.

Professor Mors is also actively involved in the academic community with the Strategic Management Society and the Academy of Management. She currently serves as an Associate Editor of the Academy of Management Perspectives – a leading journal that addresses important issues concerning management and business.  

With a focus on large, global firms, Professor Mors' research examines the relationship between senior managers’ informal networks, organization design and performance. Recently her work has also examined the role of female directors on corporate boards. Professor Mors’ work has been published in the top strategy and management journals, such as the Strategic Management Journal, Organization Science and the Academy of Management Journal.
