Welcome to the Institute for Higher Education Management
The Institute for Higher Education Management is part of the Department of Strategy and Innovation at WU and is led by Univ. Prof. Dr. Barbara Sporn.
IHM activities include research, teaching, policy advising and external engagement with different stakeholders, as well as involvement in international associations. Areas of interest at IHM combine theories of business and management applied to the complex organization of universities. With this focus, IHM provides insights for higher education scholars and practitioners but also beyond that for research and practice interested in expert and nonprofit organizational settings.
Univ. Prof. Dr. Barbara Sporn is the Academic Lead of the Strategic Management and Strategic Leadership core field of the newly reformed Cross-Functional Management (CFM) programme. CFM is a specialisation in the International Business Administration major in the Bachelor’s Program in Business, Economics and Social Sciences.
We welcome applications for the Winter Semester 2020/21 from WU undergraduate students pursuing a major in International Business Administration, and from incoming students from WU’s 250 partner universities. More information about our Strategic Management and Strategic Leadership course portfolio and the CFM programme in general can be found here.
