Institute for Entrepreneurship & InnovationRSS

The driving force behind company formation and the innovation process is the entrepreneurial act. In a fast-changing and increasingly complex world, emerging and established companies must continuously challenge and rediscover themselves through innovation.

Our teaching programs present students with state-of-the-art knowledge in the areas of entrepreneurship and innovation. Our teaching is informed by our research, in which we tackle highly relevant open questions. We continuously communicate our findings in top international journals and conferences.

In research and teaching, we can rely on our extensive network of well-known partners from international corporates, start-ups, distinguished academic institutions and government bodies.
