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!
