Rethinking History at Business Schools: A CBS Initiative

Copenhagen Business School (CBS) is one of the world-leading environments for historical research at business schools and universities. The Initiative aims at making history more central to the research and pedagogical agenda of business schools.

To date, the initiative includes:

  • Growing network of scholars and activities organized around three themes: “Historical Approaches to Entrepreneurship,” “Uses of the Past: History and Memory in Organizations” and “Cultural Approaches in Business History”
  • Rethinking History-Fellowships for visiting scholars to CBS (previous visitors included Dan Wadhwani (Univ. of the Pacific), Mick Rowlinson (Queen Mary London), Ludovic Cailluet (Univ. of Toulouse), Stephanie Decker (Aston Business School) and Andrew Popp (Univ. of Liverpool)
  • Annual PhD course “Using Historical Approaches in Management and Organizational Research” (first Nov. 2014 with 20 PhDs from 9 universities worldwide)
