Schedule Changes due to Corona

Schedule Changes

Dear students, 

As has been published on the university's website ( no course sessions or exams will take place at the university's various buildings until the end of the semester. That means that both the courses themselves, as well as exams have been modified in a way to allow for e-learning, in order to ensure that students will still be able to finish their courses this semester. 

Your lecturers will have notified you about both the updated dates and the platforms chosen which best suit the design and objectives of each course. The same is true for any changes to the exam modes or dates. 

We strongly encourage you to check the university's website, as well as your e-mails, regularly for updates. 

Stay healthy and safe!

Welcome to the Strategic Management Subject Area!

Within the Management Department we do research on and teach about how firms generate and retain value, and how managers can design effective organizations for their purposes. Within this realm, we are particularly interested in settings in which new products, processes, and business ideas are more broadly created and exploited.

Through our work we seek to engage with three different audiences very important to us:

Together with our colleagues from the international academic community we seek to advance the current scientific discussion in our field; by addressing fundamental yet unresolved questions in our domain; by publishing our findings in, reviewing for, and shaping the leading journals; by organizing joint conferences; through mutual seminar invitations; and by conducting collaborative work.

To our students, we seek to deliver the finest training that combines both proven basics and latest insights, in order to give them a head start for their careers.

To corporations worldwide, and in particularly to those in Austria and Germany, we reach out for co-operation along a variety of dimensions – including (but not being limited to) advisory work, expert assessments, workshops, in-house training, and other work.

We look forward to working with you, and to welcoming you to Vienna!

Professor Markus Reitzig
Chair, Head of the Strategy Subject Area
