Profle Topic Management & Technology

By combining management, business informatics, engineering and psychology the profile topic unites disciplinary strengths into a unique interdisciplinary profile from individual, organisational, technological and societal perspectives that illuminates the interfaces of management and technology. In this way, it pioneers the understanding and solution of key challenges of our time such as digitalisation, demographic change and climate change.

Key Topics

Digital Transformation/Data Science

As a mega-topic in the economy and society, we are dedicated to questions around digital transformation in the areas of BigData, Internet of Things and Social Media, investigating changing usage habits, resource-saving potential for increasing efficiency and automation possibilities. This orientation is reflected, among other things, in ongoing research projects on Digit@l Entrepreneurship, E-Mental Health, E-Business, E-Commerce, Online-Marketing, Knowledge Management and E-Learning.

Sustainability Management

We explore and promote ways to operate and use management and technology in more sustainable and responsible ways. Among other things, we explore psychological and organisational success factors for sustainable behaviour and decision-making, draw attention to social entrepreneurship as a driver for sustainable and responsible management, shed light on ethical concerns related to digital technologies, and gain an understanding of more sustainable production and use of materials.


We see entrepreneurship as a key competence to identify, seize and create opportunities that challenge existing and often unquestioned structures through unconventional thinking and critical reflection. Entrepreneurship is often seen as a driver of innovation and progress and is an area of moving beyond the status quo towards more digital and sustainable practices in business and society. In this sense, we see entrepreneurship as a way to add economic, environmental or social value.
