Research and education

At our Strategy & International Business section, managers in organisations and business organisations are considered the central actors. One of our main areas of focus in both research and education is examining the role of business and organisations with regard to corporate governance, social responsibility and sustainability. Another increasingly important focus is digital transformation and innovation strategy. Links to data science initiatives play an increasingly important role. The section is committed to providing high-quality education at all levels, from undergraduate (BSc) to PhD level and Executive education.
