Pernille Steen Pedersen, Assistant Professor at Department of Management, Politics and Philosophy, is a leading researcher on work related stress. Now she is spearheading a new research project that is linked to CBS’s strategy, in collaboration with students, the study administration, study boards and different units at CBS. The goal is to uncover the current situation of stress among students and develop stress-preventative measures and activities that can enhance well-being. It is the first time that the stress researcher explore this topic among students, something she is very excited about. “Everyone thinks they know what stress among students is about, but I am not so sure! I doubt that we have a picture that is comprehensive enough. I want to work with this, to understand more about stress specifically among students, and I want to address this topic from a place of curiosity and exploration; from an attitude that we don’t know yet what we are dealing with”, Pedersen says about her approach to the project.
