What we do

Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG is the key partner of the Chair of Strategic Management and Digital Entrepreneurship at HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management.
This partnership reflects the understanding that strategy is an important driver of successful management and that an emphasis should be on improving existing approaches through research, transfer and training. Within this scope, we put our research focus on digital entrepreneurship. Our goal is to present new opportunities for creating and doing business in the digital era and, in particular, to point out initiatives that foster the acceleration of entrepreneurial activity related with the foundation and development of digital new ventures within the corporate context.

As the Chair has no specific industry focus, our projects currently cover a broad range of industries, including automotive, e-commerce, software, telecommunication and travel. In addition, we support startup activities of HHL students through a wide network of entrepreneurs, business angels and venture capitalists.

While the Chair has no specific industry focus, our key competencies currently are in e-commerce, travel, and automotive. In addition, we support startup activities of HHL students through a wide network of entrepreneurs, business angels and venture capitalists.

Our research activities

Research at the Chair of Strategic Management and Digital Entrepreneurship focuses on strategy and entrepreneurship in organizations. Building on solid theory base combining rigor and relevance, researchers at the Chair analyze relevant phenomena scientifically and derive transferrable recommendations. With its strategy and entrepreneurship focus in research, the Chair assesses the following research topics:

  • corporate entrepreneurial activities in established companies
  • digitalization efforts in new ventures
  • strategies in the digital era and the use of disruptive technologies

We actively participate in the international research community through publications in leading journals such as the Harvard Business Review, Harvard Business Manager, International Journal of Entrepreneurial Venturing, Journal of Family Business Strategy, Management Review Quarterly or the Schmalenbach Business Review and through discussions and presentations at academic conferences and workshops, e.g. the Academy of Management (AOM), the Strategic Management Society (SMS), the European Academy of Management (EURAM) and the international family firm research association (ifera).

Collaboration with colleagues from different disciplines is used as a foundation to ensure that multiple perspectives are considered. In addition to scholarly research, our focus lies on the development of industry competencies.. The Chair of Strategic Management and Digital Entrepreneurship also offers master thesis supervision alongside current research projects. The theses of M.Sc. students usually pursue a more theoretical approach whereas MBA students rather deal with conceptual and or application oriented topics.
