CBS was established in 1917 by the Danish Society for the Advancement of Business Education (now known as FUHU), which is a private educational institution. In 1965 the business school became integrated into the Danish educational system as an institution of higher education.
With the distinctiveness of its diversity, Copenhagen Business School aims to become a world-leading business university with teaching and research excellence in classical management disciplines and in disciplines that place business in a wider social, political and cultural context.
CBS has a particular responsibility to bring knowledge and new ideas to companies and business organisations, to the next generation of business leaders, and to society as a whole. Specifically, and drawing upon our North European background and history, they will play a major role in the discussion of innovative and entrepreneurial business models, sustainable organisational forms and economic practices within the perspective of responsible management and leadership.
They will nurture an entrepreneurial spirit within the University, encouraging to new ideas, open to local initiative, and flexible in the face of new possibilities.
