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 division of Finance and Accounting aligns its research activities with the areas of Digital Transformation, Sustainable Development and Finance, focusing on interdisciplinary research with research groups in the fields of engineering & natural sciences, medicine and law. The goal is to give companies a holistic, integrated perspective of key elements involved in various transformation processes and share research findings with the business community and at the Business School.

Supporting institutes in the faculty's subject area:

The division Management and Marketing actively contributes to impactful and recognized research, top quality education, and hands-on knowledge sharing in the research areas of Digital Transformation, Sustainable Development, and Finance as well as contributions to life science research, leadership of innovation, and change processes. Start-up companies and entrepreneurship at established organizations are the seeds to create new business models, processes, and practices, thereby serving as an important prerequisite to support ongoing transformation which ensures that innovative regions and companies remain competitive. The key challenges include identifying technological, economic, and social changes at an early stage, as well as proactively managing and scaling transformation on a global scale. In addition, there is a growing need to implement effective transformation strategies that extend outside of the organization (open strategy and innovation). The outcome of these management challenges not only affects individual corporate structures, but all sectors of the economy and wider society.

The Supply Chain and Information Management division contributes significantly to research, education, and knowledge transfer in planning and implementing transformation processes as part of the digitalization process. We do this by not only providing targeted access to business-relevant information and knowledge, but also by pooling our expertise in business informatics and management. Thanks to an interdisciplinary perspective in technology and business administration, we conduct cutting-edge research into methods and procedures to support the design, planning, and implementation of internal and cross-organizational processes as well as value creation networks. We intend to continue supporting and expanding on these synergies to extend the Business School's points of contact with its other areas of specialization.
