Copenhagen Business School, Denmark
Marketing Department - 2 PhD positions

Copenhagen Business School (CBS) was established in 1917 and became
integrated as an institution of higher education in the Danish education
system in 1965. Today CBS is regulated by the Danish Universities Act 2003 under the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation. Copenhagen Business School has more than 16,000 students and an annual intake of around 1,000 exchange students. With this number of students as well as around 400 full-time researchers and around 500 administrative employees, CBS is one of the three largest business schools in Northern Europe. Using traditional fields within business economics and languages as a starting point, CBS gives very high priority to cross-disciplinary and problem-oriented approaches, making sociology, psychology, anthropology, politology, law, philosophy, and intercultural understanding important areas of CBS’ academic profile. CBS’ research profile covers a wide range of subjects within the social sciences and the humanities. A wide academic scope is a prerequisite for CBS to be able to challenge habitual ways of thinking and traditional business economics and language issues. Creativity and innovation characterize CBS’ approach to both existing and new subject areas and are necessary for meeting the demands placed on universities by the knowledge society and globalization. This is why CBS strives to maintain a strong international platform in the way of international publications, leadership of academic networks, editorial activities, conference hosting, and PhD collaboration.
