JKU Business School Divisions.

The JKU Business School covers diverse areas of Business Administration and Business Informatics ranging grom Organizational Sciences and Tax Management to Software Engineering. By dividing itself into three functional fields, the JKU Business School can delve deep into research, business education, and knowledge transfer.


The Finance and Accounting division aligns its research activities in the areas of Digital Transformation, Sustainable Development and Finance. The focus is on interdisciplinary research with research groups from the technical-scientific, medical and law faculties. The aim is to analyze a holistic view on the essential aspects of different transformation processes to the companies, and to share this research and practice within the business school.

Supporting Institutes of the Faculty Area:

The division Management and Marketing actively contributes impactful and recognized research, high-class teaching and vivid transfer activities in the research areas of Digital Transformation, Sustainable Development and Finance, in addition to contributions in the areas of life science research and leadership of innovation and change processes. Start-ups and entrepreneurship in established organizations are seeds for the emergence of new business models, processes and practices, and thus an important prerequisite for ongoing transformation that ensures the competitiveness of innovative regions and companies. Technological, economic and social changes detected in time (foresight) and transformations having to be proactively designed and scaled globally act as key challenges. At the same time, effective transformation strategies need to be conducted and implemented more and more beyond the borders of the organization (Open Strategy and Innovation). The results of these management challenges not only affect individual corporate functions, but all sectors of the economy and society.

Supporting Institutes of the Faculty Area:

The Supply Chain and Information Management division contributes significantly to research, teaching and transfer into the planning and implementation of transformation processes in the context of digitization. This occurs particularly by means of appropriate support for business-relevant information and intelligence. Competencies in business informatics and management have already been brought together in this area. Cutting-edge research is possible from an interdisciplinary engineering and business perspective on methods and procedures for designing, planning and implementation of digitization of internal and cross-organizational processes and value networks. These synergies are to be further supported and expanded as well as increase the points of contact with the other areas of the business school.
