Ethic category

The Case Centre Director, Richard McCracken, visited Copenhagen Business School (CBS) on 7 April 2017 to present the Ethics and Social Responsibility Award 2017 to Rasmus Johnsen and Navid Baharlooie.

Co-authors Rasmus and Navid won the award for their case, CULT Girl: Responsible Management and Self-Management of Subjectivity at Work, which focused on a drinks company’s marketing practices.

The duo were presented with their trophies at a brunch hosted by Professor Lotte Jensen, Head of the Department of Management, Politics and Philosophy.

She said: “The department are delighted that Rasmus and Navid have been recognised with the 2017 Ethics and Social Responsibility Award. Their case fits extremely well with Copenhagen Business School’s focus on teaching and learning.”

Rasmus, an Assistant Professor at CBS, led the case writing process alongside Navid, who was a Student Assistant at CBS before joining Telenor DK as an Executive Trainee.

Ramus added: “This award really means a lot to me. Teaching is my passion and writing the case was really exciting. I am especially happy that a case like this, one that is fairly open-ended and has no clear answers, has been so useful to so many people.”
