Since 1973, organizational research has had a longstanding tradition at the JKU. Internationally oriented research and education continue to shape the institute to the present day.
As part of the field of social and behavioral sciences, the Institute of Organization Science is committed to research and education focusing on ‘the organization’. This means that we not only understand organizational sciences as a key area of managerial responsibility, the organization itself is also a central institution within a modern society, significantly influencing the way people live and work, especially in a work environment.
Since its inception, the institute has successfully collaborated with leading international universities around the world, including universities in Australia, Germany, France, Great Britain, and Canada, thereby contributing consistently to the JKU's internationalization efforts in research and academic education.
