We live in a world full of change. The need to adapt in terms of sustainability, digitalisation and diversity poses challenges for companies and organisations. We want to prepare our students for dealing with these challenges. In our research, we want to help shape these changes.
„A rapidly changing world needs a new management. We are shaping it with our research and teaching.”
In their research, the chairs share a common economic perspective and empirical methodology as well as the goal of publishing important research results in international journals.
We contribute our expertise to courses across all degree programmes in the Faculty. In particular, we shape degree programmes that we coordinate within the department itself. Values issues are also discussed with students in the "Business Ethics" cooperation area in collaboration with other faculties. Interdisciplinarity and evidence-based research are important to us. The new global challenges raise questions that quickly reach the limits of knowledge and expertise and call for agile scrutiny based on data. We impart these findings and important management tools in our teaching at all levels, right up to the doctoral candidate course we offer jointly. In short: We support decision makers in managing transformation..
All chairs in the department take part in the centralised allocation procedure of the faculty. If you would like to write your thesis with a chair in the department, please indicate this preference in the allocation procedure. Please note that some chairs are very popular and it is therefore not always possible to be supervised according to your preferences. We therefore recommend that you always indicate several preferences. Please check the websites of your preferred chairs to find out which application documents are required (e.g. letter of motivation, academic exposé, CV, overview of grades).
