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.
