PhD Scholarship

Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a vacant PhD scholarship within the field of operations and innovation management.
The Department’s research profile covers and integrates four academic research areas: Supply chain management (design of flows of goods, services, knowledge and information between firms); Performance management (design, use, and effects of financial and non-financial measures in strategy development and implementation); Innovation management (deployment of management tool to connect technology, organisation and markets); Operations management (relation between production, organization, and strategy in manufacturing and service industries); Managerial economics (decision modelling around pricing, costing, production planning and forecasting).
The Department of Operations Management supplies teaching and supervision to undergraduate, graduate, masters, executive and PhD programmes in economics and business administration.
This Phd project is expected to analyse the role of operations and innovation in relation to productivity and competitiveness.
