Business Administration and Industrial Engineering

The Division of Business Administration and Industrial Engineering is organized into the disciplines of Accounting and Control, Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Industrial Marketing and Quality Technology. We have approximately 60 employees.

The research, which is primarily organization-oriented, is mostly applied and conducted in close cooperation with companies and other organizations. Research as well as teaching is conducted in both the engineering sector and the social science sector. Our teaching is comprehensive and central to both the Master Programme in Industrial and Engineering Management and the Master Programme in Business and Economics.
