Dr. Arne Keller is the JKU Business School's new Rising Scholar

The JKU Business School draws attention to particularly dedicated faculty members who have outstanding publications.

Arne Keller

Arne Keller is a postdoctoral researcher at the Johannes Kepler University Linz and at the Vienna University of Technology, Austria. He earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Master of Science in Management & Marketing at Freie Universität Berlin, Germany. During this period he studied abroad at the University of California Berkeley and at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champagne. After his studies, he received a PhD (Dr. rer. pol.) from Freie Universität Berlin. In his dissertation on incumbent inertia and adaptation to technological change, he analyzed the arduous transition of Leica Camera from analog to digital image processing. He was a visiting scholar at several international universities including Bocconi University Milan, IESE Business School Barcelona, and Purdue University, Krannert School of Management. His research centers on change and processual dynamics of organizations and interorganizational relationships. Specifically, he currently examines the role of social status hierarchies in reconfiguring firm capabilities and explores how conflicts and tensions unfold in processes of ambidexterity.

At JKU he leads a research project funded by the Oesterreichische Nationalbank (OenB) on digital transformation of hidden champions (Rosenbauer, KTM etc.). Arne presents his work regularly in international conferences such as the Academy of Management Meeting and meetings of the Strategic Management Society. His work is published in leading management journals such as Organization Science and Strategic Organization. He teaches courses for undergraduate and graduate students, as well as executive education programs.

JKU Business School Rising Scholars are post-doctoral candidates who work at one of the JKU Business School’s supporting institutes and have published outside their dissertation work over the past two years.
