The CBS Board of Directors has placed special emphasis on Nikolaj Malchow-Møller’s experience of university management, initially as head of department from 2009 to 2014 and subsequently as dean from 2014, including the results he has achieved and his top executive potential, and finally, his insight into academia and his extensive knowledge of research and education at CBS.

”The Board is pleased to welcome Nikolaj Malchow-Møller to CBS. With Nikolaj’s personal and professional competences, the Board is convinced that his collaboration with the Board, CBS’ employees and students will have great impact on the ongoing development of CBS,” says Karsten Dybvad, Chairman of the CBS Board of Directors.

”Through the past 25 years, CBS has established an incredibly strong brand with an array of very strong, diverse and international research environments, the most popular academic programmes in Denmark, and researchers who play a leading role in the public debate. We are going to hold on to that; however, it is my hope that we can take advantage of this unique opportunity to stress and enhance the value of CBS to Danish society.”
