About the Research Group
The researchers are based in business administration, economics, and law but also collaborate with colleagues from other subjects. The research group works in five focus areas:
Growth and Development
Strategies and decision-making for small entrepreneurial companies internationalizing their operations is of great interest. Business development and change also affect large companies as a result of technological development and changed institutional conditions, for example the legislative work within the EU.
Environment and climate
The research in this area deals with how environmental and climate aspects can be included in financial management. It is also important to understand how the behavior of companies and consumers can be influenced with the help of policy instruments.
Society has undergone a minor revolution as a result of digitalization. For companies, digitalization is an absolute necessity for development, efficiency and profitability, but digitalization also affects the organization of companies and the purchasing behavior of consumers.
Institutions and rules
Institutions and rules constitute the framework within which the business world operates. The research group tries to understand the role of institutions in times of rapid technological development and an uncertain environment.
Human resource management
In times of greatly increased serviceization and digitization, organizations' most important resource is their employees. The research group therefore analyzes how organizations develop strategies for learning and managing staff, which also influences their well-being.
