Præsentation

Except for five years as an economist at the Carlsberg Research center, I have been in various academic positions at CBS. I was post doc at HEC, France in 1993 and visiting scholar at University of Queensland, Australia (2000), University of Gothenburg (2008), and University of Southern Denmark (2011). I started as an international marketing researcher focusing on dynamics foreign operation and internationalization processes of firms. By the late 1990s my focus shifted from downstream to upstream processes (global sourcing). My original theoretical basis was transaction cost economics (which permeated my PhD thesis), but has since then spread to contractual economics in general (in addition to TCE, agency theory, and property right theory) with side jumps into the resource-dependence theory, resource-based perspective, real option theory, and value creation logics. All these different theoretical perspectives are brought together in my research and teaching in “strategic contracting”. I have worked with large-N survey data and databases as well as case studies.

Lately, I am doing research in the crossroads of international business, geopolitics, and technology. This may sound confusing, and it probably is.

Primære forskningsområder

I have quite a diversified portfolio of research areas (a privilege of a seasoned professor?). I am currently doing research (and trying to publish it) within 4-5 different areas, including global value chains, China-Europe business relations (focusing on the maritime sector), strategic contracting in an international context, real options in international collaborations - and I also still cling to my old research field: dynamics of foreign operation modes.

Administrative opgaver

Associate Dean of the EMBA in Shipping and Logistics.

Vejledning

In the recent years, I have co-supervised around 20 students in connection to their master thesis. Most of the students have been enrolled in CBS’ Law and Economics program (cand merc.jur), and I

am supervising these students in relation to the economic part of their thesis - supplementing the juridical supervisor (usually prof. Kim Østergaard from LAW/LPF)

Andre undervisningsaktiviteter

I am occasionally (co-)writing teaching cases.
