Meet the JKU BUS.

Fast Trader or Fair Trader? Regional or International? The answer is AND. New times call for new strategies and new answers to questions arising from digitalization and internationalization.

The JKU Business School thrives in research, education, and real-world business practices through its commitment to the following core values:

Bold and Entrepreneurial

Firmly anchored in the region, the JKU Business School is an academic hub with an international focus. We not only teach our students to be entrepreneurially minded, we also prepare them to face key challenges of our times: Digital transformation and sustainability.

Connected and Impactful

We offer broad academic and scientific education, making students aware of just how different subject areas connect so they can understand businesses in their entirety and have a real impact as future managers and leaders who are able to think outside of the box.

Curiosity-Driven and Research-led

Each of the JKU Business School's three divisions (Finance & Accounting, Management & Marketing, and Supply Chain & Information Management) feature high-profile researchers who work in their respective subject areas at the frontier of a new knowledge generation. This knowledge forms the basis of effective knowledge transfer – both in the classroom as well as in relation to real-world business practices.

Supportive and Collegial

Our students have the privilege of getting to know attentive, high-profile researchers as part of a relatively small study group and are able to experience a collegial and work-friendly environment that has become a mainstay at the JKU Business School.

New publication in Organization Studies

Georg Reischauer published the paper “Unmanaged Transparency in a Digital Society: Swiss Army Knife or Double-edged Sword?” in Organization Studies (VHB A [ABWL]). The paper examines the organizational consequences of following a ‘hands-off’-approach to information disclosure, also known as unmanaged transparency. We identify how organizational members make this kind of transparency happen on a day-to-day basis and how other members respond to these practices. We also identify negative consequences of unmanaged transparency. Our study suggests that in a digital society, unmanaged transparency is more of a double-edged sword rather than a Swiss army knife: organizations might profit from its positive effects on the audience’s support, but they also make themselves vulnerable by the high levels of dissonance they put on display.

The paper is available in open access here: https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/01708406221106329

Practical talk with emporia from Linz

On Wednesday, 15.06.2022, we had the pleasure of holding the 4th and thus last Praxisdialog in the summer semester 2022 together with emporia from Linz. With her exciting presentation about the company, its history, challenges and future plans, the JKU students and practitioners gained insights into the company. Eveline Pupeter (CEO emporia Telecom) and Karin Schaumberger (Chief Sales & Marketing at emporia) also chatted a bit from the inside.

Afterwards there was the opportunity for discussion and Q&A. There was also the possibility to try out the products of emporia Telecom - from the point of view of the target group. Whether it was glasses that simulate cataracts or gloves that make gripping difficult.

We would like to thank you for the great lecture, the exciting discussion and the numerous participants at the event.

„Creating the JKU Business School will place us among Europe's top universities in the field of business. The JKU Business School's long-term goals include becoming internationally accredited.“
