Technische Universität München - TUM School of Management - Chair of Strategic and International Management
The Chair of Strategic and International Management, headed by Univ.-Prof. Dr. Thomas Hutzschenreuter, invites applications as
Doctoral Research Associate (m/f/d)
Our research addresses strategies, transformations, and the success of firms. We strive for giving success-critical impulses for business practice as well further developing strategy concepts and theories.
Our research focuses on three areas: Strategy&technology, Strategy&global contexts, and the Theory of the firm. Motivated by practical problems of corporate management, we seek for impactful solution in all our research areas (see www.simanagement.wi.tum.de). We do not only cooperate with renowned scholars at home and abroad but also with well-known corporate partners. Research results are presented at international conferences as well as transferred to business practice.
Previous doctoral candidates of Professor Hutzschenreuter are today executives in multinational enterprises, international strategy consultancies, private equity companies and work for international business schools.
Professor Hutzschenreuter intensively supports you on your research project. You will work along a structured project plan with clear milestones for each semester. As part of the doctoral studies at TUM Graduate Center you will learn the methods of academic research and have access to opportunities of content-specific doctoral courses.
