Research Areas


Given their high global and societal relevance, many research issues demand an interdisciplinary research approach. In light of this necessity, the School of Business and Economics has chosen to develop its profile in the direction of interdisciplinarity, drawing together strands from the business and economics sciences with those from the engineering and natural sciences. Four Research Areas have been created, each of them reflecting the intense interdisciplinary activities within the School itself and each of them a point of contact for collaboration with other schools, faculties, and centers at RWTH Aachen University. The focus of each Research Area is aligned with the exceptional opportunities that only a university of technology can offer.
