Copenhagen Business School has 22,000 students and over 600 full-time professors (assistant/associate/full).

Based in architecturally beautiful buildings in central Copenhagen, the Department of Operations Management is a leading provider of excellent research based education.

The core research areas of the Department covers and integrates five academic research areas: Supply chain management (design and management 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 tools and mechanisms to connect technology, organization 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).

Our vision is to be bold in ideas and strong in practice! It is the ambition of the department to be orientated towards questions that attempt to debate the boundaries of the disciplines. Our plurality of disciplines allows an unparalleled level of cross-disciplinary exchange of research ideas – an interaction which aids the fostering of a strong intellectual environment.
