About the Project

Decisions in organizations, businesses and institutions are based on forms of knowledge that figure prominently in business school disciplines (e.g. economics, psychology, law, and statistics). Research into the foundations of these forms of knowledge, and evaluations as to how such knowledge ought to influence managerial decision-making has significant potential for practical impact. In announcing an associate professorship in philosophy of management science, MPP wishes to strengthen research into the theoretical assumptions of the scientific disciplines that shape central management theories and dominant management practices. This associate professorship is intended to further develop the existing environment in MPP Philosophy focusing on the foundations of managerial decision-making and the theoretical underpinnings of management science. The aim in opening this position is to attract candidates with relevant competences in philosophy of science, practical philosophy and/or epistemology who would pursue research agendas such as:

  1. What are the governing assumptions and the validity of theories and methods within the field of organization, economy and management?
  2. How do forms of knowledge cultivated by business school disciplines shape organizations and influence employee behavior?
  3. How can the capability to assess the validity and effects of such forms of knowledge improve decision-making processes within private and public organizations?

The successful candidate must be trained in philosophy and be able to document ability to teach philosophy at undergraduate and master levels, and, for associate professors, possess ability to supervise PhDs within philosophy.

About the Department

MPP is a unique Business Humanities department central to the CBS Strategy of transforming society with business. MPP is a multi-disciplinary research department with the ambition to make our research in management and organization studies at an internationally qualified level known to students, companies, public institutions, and research colleagues as innovative, creative and critical/reflexive. A creative, multi-disciplinary dialogue that challenges and combines academic disciplines and perspectives ties research at the department together. This implies that core areas like management, strategy, leadership, innovation, entrepreneurship, aesthetics, politics, philosophy, sociology and history, become productive and critically relevant in new ways. The department is committed to research-based education and to bring this new knowledge into play in society in a constructive, engaged, and valuable manner. A key focus of MPP is to publish its research with highly ranked academic journals and publishers across a broad spectrum of areas, reflecting the department’s multidisciplinary set-up.

MPP is organised into five research groups: politics; law; business history; philosophy and management. Within and between these groups, research and teaching is developed theoretically and empirically in areas such as leadership philosophy; business ethics; business law; sociology of markets and organization; sustainability; the history of markets and businesses; organizations and entrepreneurship; art and aesthetics; strategy; welfare management and political communication. MPP also participates in numerous interdisciplinary cross CBS activities.

Across the department, there is a keen interest in developing new forms of teaching and learning environments in collaboration with CBS faculty, international researchers, students and partner organizations. MPP’s researchers teach in a wide range of CBS programs and covers Bachelor, Master and PhD levels as well as executive programs.

The position is located in the Philosophy Group.

To fulfill the research requirements of the position, the applicant chosen is expected to be physically present on a regular basis and actively participate in the teaching and research activities of the Department.
