Research at the Department of Business Administration

Research at the department is based on a strongly empirical tradition. This means that our researchers focus on studying how organisations, in both the private and the public sector, work within their surroundings and interact with them. This has helped our researchers to be able to build up extensive national and international networks with trade and industry and the public sector, and with researchers in their respective specialist fields.
