IBU Institutsbild

The Institute of Management at KIT is a competent partner for companies, researchers of various disciplines as well as for students. Our main focus lies in the areas controlling, corporate governance, human resource management, personnel economics, organization, and strategy. We not only conduct research in these areas but also create linkages to practical issues in companies. We foster cooperation with companies and researchers, especially those from economics and natural sciences. Possible cooperation can for example be established within the framework of joint research projects or student theses.

We emphasize theory based, fact-based and quantitative approaches and aim to go beyond pure description of phenomena and to develop and apply analytical frameworks that provide directions for action. We incorporate results and methods from other scientific disciplines, from the natural sciences but also from behavioral sciences into our work and pursue an international orientation.


The Chair of Human Resource Management is looking for a student assistant
