Furthermore, collaboration with practitioners is highly prioritized by the unit as is engagement in outreach and knowledge exchange activities with the surrounding society.
DBM works both quantitatively and qualitatively to build bridges between applied and fundamental research. The department houses seven vibrant research units (Accounting, Centre for Integrative Innovation Management, Consumption, Culture & Commerce, Finance, International Business & Entrepreneurship, Management of People, and Strategic Organization Design) whose work is anchored in an understanding of the cooperation between markets, organizations and individuals. It encompasses a variety of areas from evolutionary models of organization to new exotic forms of consumption and seeks synergy between research, teaching and knowledge exchange.
A modern, forward-looking university SDU has around 30,000 students enrolled across its six campuses in Denmark.

What are we looking for?
The unit is looking for candidates with the potential to decisively add to the unit’s research agenda.
