The fourth annual management research workshop was held at the Tabakfabrik Linz on May 19 and 20, 2016. 25 early scholars received feedback and advice from ten management professors, including guests from renowned universities such as Oxford and Alberta.
The workshop has three objectives: First, to provide junior researchers at JKU and other universities with a unique opportunity to present their work to distinguished academics and researchers, and receive constructive criticism and advice. Second, junior researchers can receive invaluable support for their work by meeting new colleagues and professors. Third, management research at the JKU benefits from the international attention, enhancing the university’s visibility and reputation within the global scientific community.
Prof. Robert Bauer (Institute for Organization and Global Management Education), Prof. Dorothea Greiling (Institute of Management Accounting), Prof. Matthias Fink (Institute for Innovation Management) and Prof. Giuseppe Delmestri (WU Vienna) organized this year‘s Early Scholars Workshop. The workshop was made possible by funding provided by the Upper Austrian government, the deanship at the Faculty of Social Sciences, Economics and Business, and by the Austrian Academy of Sciences.
Prof. Bauer is pleased with the successful workshop and highlights: “We have once again been able to attract leading scholars in the field of management research to Linz.” This year’s faculty included Prof. Regine Bendl (Vienna University of Economics and Business), Prof. Elango Elangovan (University of Victoria), Prof. Royston Greenwood (University of Alberta), Prof. Markus Höllerer (UNSW Business School & Vienna University of Economics and Business), Prof. Elke Schüßler (JKU Linz), and Prof. Michael Smets (University of Oxford). The workshop is held alternating at JKU Linz and WU Vienna: in 2017 Prof. Giuseppe Delmestri of WU takes the lead and organizes the workshop in Vienna.
