”I am convinced that Inger Askehave’s leadership skills, experience, personal competences and management style will be a good match for the current Senior Management and CBS. She will provide us with a solid basis to develop our strategy with the organisation through a trustful relationship with CBS’ heads of department and consequently all our deeply committed researchers and lecturers at the departments,” says Nikolaj Malchow-Møller.

”I have applied for this new position because I am motivated by CBS’ new ambitious strategy and the possibilities provided to set a clear, strategic direction for CBS.
