CBS in October


How do you assess the value of a company which teaches the youth to solve conflicts? What precedes Denmark’s successful pension system? What is the recipe for sustainable banking? How do you get a job at Google? These are just some of the many questions that CBS addresses at the events in October.


What value do socio-economic companies create?

Thursday 5 October, 15:00 to 17:00, Solbjerg Plads 3, 2000 Frederiksberg, “Skoven” B3.19-24 (Center for Business Development and Management)

Ballast CPH develops products that diffuse knowledge of visually handicap. The Non-Violence Project educates young people in how to solve conflicts without violence. And a poet brands himself as one who tells lies about old paintings to bring art back to the people. The three companies are a part of the meeting place for socio-economic companies called KPH Projects. What value do the socio-economic companies have? How can municipalities best create good conditions for their activities? The manager of KPH Projects and lecturer Niels Thygesen at the Department of Management, Politics and Philosophy at CBS will discuss this question. Niels Thygesen will argue that the value of this kind of company should be understood from a gift economy perspective rather than a financial economy perspective.

In 2018, it is 25 years ago that occupational pension was introduced in Denmark.

CBS’ new adjunct professor Torben Möger Pedersen has been an active participant first as a negotiator and supervisor on the design of the new occupational pension schemes and later as CEO at one of Denmark’s largest pension providers, PensionDanmark. On 3 October, he gives an inaugural lecture in which he tells his story and reflects on the changing agendas he has witnessed over time.

The purpose of the conference ”Banking for the future – rethinking the financial sector” is to set an agenda for business schools in 2017 which can influence research and teaching activities in the banking and financial sector. In spite of experiences from the financial crisis, the need for innovative thinking within both legislation and financial business operations is still essential. The conference gathers both researchers and practitioners in order to discuss research in and teaching of responsible banking. The key speaker is the director of Danmarks Nationalbank (the National Bank of Denmark) Per Callesen.
