„Global change processes are opportunities for innovation. To reach sustainable solutions, our faculty relies on transdisciplinarity.“

Univ.-Prof. Dr. Gerald Steiner

Dean of the Faculty of Business and Globalisation

New approaches, innovative methods and joined-up thinking are needed to understand the networked world in order to make it as sustainable and resilient as possible. Therefore the Faculty of Business and Globalisation pursues transdisciplinary principles in means of a mutual learning process between science and society.
