At this Strategy, Organisation and Leadership program from Copenhagen Business School (CBS) you will learn to combine theoretical insight with an understanding of the practical challenges of strategy, organisation and leadership. 


The Strategy, Organisation and Leadership programme from Copenhagen Business School (CBS) will have a strong focus on leading edge theories. These scientific theories are abstract, yet practical in the sense that they relate to organisations and their challenges.

This is the reason why you never find a definitive answer to organisational problems, and thatis the reason why you will not end up with a management toolbox by studying the SOL programme.

You will be prepared to solve complex and dynamic situations of leadership, and you will build up your analytical skills for dealing with problems and situations that are ill/badly defined, complex and ambiguous. You therefore get insight in to different perspectives on business strategies, by understanding different practices of strategising and how they address organisational and environmental challenges. Saying this, you will not learn tools on how to make a business strategy from a to z.

You learn about the present understanding of organisations, about organisations as actors in a broader society and thereby understand that organisations are all different. To handle problems in organisations and to be able to find the best solutions for each organisation, you need a broad knowledge and insight into many different perspectives.. It could be e.g. , how to mobilise resources in organisational growth, or it could be knowledge about what happens with group dynamics when organisations implement change and innovation processes.

You will learn about processes ranging from individual level, to groups, organisations and society, where you encounter topics such as strategy, identity, branding, innovation, organising, accounting, ethics, and leadership.


Students often find employment in public or private organisations, industry or consulting. They work within areas such as analysis, project management, executive assistance, operations, HRM, trainee, consulting and organisational change.
