Research excellence is part of our tradition

The School of Business, Economics and Society, founded from the former Nuremberg Commercial College, has a long tradition of conducting excellent research that addresses challenges facing the economy, business and society. Two of the characteristic features of its varied research profile are the combination of perspectives and approaches from business, economics and the social sciences, and interdisciplinary collaboration. The School’s strengths include its empirical focus in the majority of research projects, its emphasis on interdisciplinary research and its collaboration with strong partners from industry.

The School is committed to conducting excellent research, continuing to improve its research and its research-oriented teaching, and promoting young researchers at an early stage in their careers.
