Research and faculty
We will engage in conceptual and empirical research that advances our understanding about the role, dynamics, and impact of corporations in the creation of sustainable social, environmental and economic value.
Across disciplines we conduct research that promotes corporate social responsibility, awareness of sustainability and ethics.
Some of our research centers stand out through activities and projects of particular relevance:

The Center for Green Growth works on climate issues in a holisitic, multidisiplinary and long term perspective. The focus is on what can be done to reduce climate gas emissions at the global, national, corporate and individual level.
Nordic Centre for Internet and Society

Centre for Corporate Communication
We focus on corporate communication as the total of communication activities of both public and private sector organizations to achieve their goals.
