Business Management, in Particular Communication and Cultural Management

The Chair of Business Administration, with emphasis on Communication and Cultural Management under the direction of Prof. Dr. Sigrid Bekmeier-Feuerhahn, deals with questions of strategic corporate communication, in particular with questions that move executives and present them with new challenges.

Our research focuses on communication management and ranges from communication in the process of change, corporate perception and reputation, and branding to questions of communication management in cultural institutions, which are currently gaining particular relevance in view of the current dynamics in the cultural landscape. The basis of our research is an interdisciplinary theory formation, which includes economic-, social communication- and behavioural scientific findings as well as interdisciplinary aspects of cultural studies.

In the field of teaching, the chair is involved in numerous teaching programmes and courses at Bachelor, Master and doctoral level at Leuphana University. In addition, it is involved in the transfer of research into practice through numerous theory-practice concepts.
