Welcome to the Endowed Chair for Interdisciplinary Management Science

We break new ground in the interdisciplinary management education of students from all faculties including Arts and Humanities, Human Sciences, Law, Mathematics and Natural Sciences, and Medicine. Since students of fields other than business are future leaders in a variety of institutions, a fundamental understanding of business and entrepreneurial concepts and thinking is indispensable. To account for this, the overarching goal of the chair is giving students of non-business faculties a fundamental understanding of business, entrepreneurship, management and leadership. In particular, in our teaching, we emphasize business and management-orientated analytical tools and their use in different contexts (for instance, in clinics, museums, charitable institutions, and public or scientific institutions). Similarly, our research is also characterized by a high level of interdisciplinarity, knowledge transfer and (mainly quantitative-empirical) methodological competencies to offer contributions to the academic discussion, university teaching and practice.
