The School of Business and Economics at RWTH Aachen University is a renowned institution for teaching and for conducting research at one of the leading technological universities in Europe. In our research and teaching, we cross disciplinary boundaries and integrate insights from engineering and the natural sciences with economic, business, and social issues to help solve the global challenges of tomorrow. The mission of the School of Business and Economics is to prepare students for a productive and socially responsible career in business and economics and to generate innovative and impactful ideas at the interface of business and industry, society, the natural sciences, and technology. To achieve this mission, the School conducts high-quality research, with a strong emphasis on interdisciplinary issues and new technologies. This research is a balanced blend of basic research that advances current knowledge within our academic discipline and applied, third-party-funded research that addresses specific problems of firms and nonprofit organizations; provides high-quality degree programs that feature innovative teaching methods and technologies and that emphasize the critical discussion of current research findings and, whenever appropriate, a quantitative orientation; creates a stimulating working and learning environment (i.e., a "place to be") by actively promoting interaction between the School and its stakeholders and by engaging students and all other stakeholders in the development of the School.
