Copenhagen Business School
Copenhagen Business School (CBS) was established in 1917 and is one of the largest business schools in Europe with more than 20,000 students and 1,500 employees. CBS has a triple accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the Association of MBAs (AMBA) and the European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS), which puts CBS in the top one percent of business schools worldwide.
CBS is committed to providing business-related education programmes and continuing education for the public and, in particular, the private sector. Programmes are based on a strong and internationally renowned research base, which CBS works consistently to strengthen. Furthermore, CBS is committed to communicating knowledge and new ideas to tomorrow’s business leaders and society in general. Its main contribution in this field is research and research-based education, and investment in research and high academic standards is therefore crucial to CBS’ contribution to society.
PeRCent is a reseach centre funded jointly in cooperation between Copenhagen Business School and partners from the pension sector in Denmark. The mission of PeRCent is to create interest and knowledge about pension issues and through research, teaching and dissemination to contribute to the development of the pension system in Denmark.
A key objective of PeRCent is to make high-quality contributions in the pension research area, through publications in books and leading scientific journals in economics and finance. International research collaboration, including visitor and joint research programmes, is an important key to obtain high research standards. PeRCent therefore stimulates these activities by having an active conference, workshop and seminar programme with a strong international orientation. Moreover, through a regular intake of PhD students and postdocs, the centre contributes to educate the next generation of researchers.
