The Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach Junior Professorship in International Management was founded in 2013 and focuses on maintaining and expanding German-Polish scientific relations.
In current research projects we investigate the role and the impact of international top managers in the internationalization processes of firms. A second major research area comprises the internationalization of German and Polish small and medium sized firms.
The Junior Professorship also fosters regional and international partnerships. We collaborate with the Leipzig-based Fraunhofer Center for International Management and Knowledge Economy IMW to establish a network and cooperation between the stakeholders of the Central and Eastern European growth markets.
Our teaching activities aim at providing students with state of the art knowledge in international management. To do so, we combine theoretical perspectives with critical thinking and real-life case studies. Ultimately, our courses shall prepare students to effectively deal with the challenges arising from firms’ international activities.
