The general objective of our teaching program is to motivate students to deal with different instruments, processes and elements of value-based management on a theoretical and practical level. Examples are the development of the system of financial control, the evaluation of strategies on company and business segment level, as well as the design of compensation schemes for the top management. The aim for our students is to get to know and discuss the use of different instruments of value-based management, as well as to understand the impact of these instruments on the strategic and operative development of a company.

In order to meet this goal, we attach high importance to a systematic mix of research and practice in our teaching. In doing so, we discuss both current examples from practice and analyse case studies throughout our courses. Additionally, guest lectures are a regular part of our lectures. At the same time, we integrate current research results from our Chair and from other national and international researchers, which allows us to provide the students with a thorough insight in current research topics. Beside this content driven perspective, it is our concern that students get to know current econometric methods to be able to interpret and discuss empirical findings from research publications in top journals.

      Information on scientific work
      When supervising seminar papers and dissertations, we set great importance on creating a balance between assistance and autonomy that’s in line with the philosophy of supervision of the Department “Management.” That means that you can actively and independently design your scientific work, but that you also have the access to a contact partner if you need more intensive support. With the following three building blocks, we help prepare you for writing scientific works:

        In the kick-off event for our Bachelor's and Master's seminars, we will provide an overview of the content and concrete information on scientific work.

        Individual support sessions ensure that we support you with your specific questions about your seminar paper or thesis. Particularly, this concerns the discussion of the project in the form of a kick-off and the structure of your work, but also other concrete questions that arise during the preparation of your work. In order to provide you with optimal support, we expect an appointment to be made in a timely manner and careful preparation for the meeting. Please send us the documents required for your appointment the day before at the latest.
