Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a vacant PhD scholarship within the field of IT Management.
The department of IT Management cares about the interaction of people, information and technology in all of its manifestations. We study how individuals, groups, organizations and society can grow and prosper by capitalizing on information and technologies.
We do not focus solely on technical aspects or on organizational managerial aspects, but rather take a socio-technical perspective and a multidisciplinary approach to address a range of strategic, structural, and operational activities involved in gathering, processing, storing, distributing and use of information and its derivatives in organizations and society. We wish to experiment with IT and for that purpose we have labs at the department to explore, build and test IT.
Teaching responsibilities of the Department comprise undergraduate and graduate teaching in Bachelor in Business Administration and Information Systems, Bachelor in Information Management, MSc in Business Administration and Information Systems and the MSc in IT (eBusiness).
