The Institute of Business Administration (BWI) at the Universität Stuttgart consists of nine departments, representing the scientific field of business administration in research and teaching. The institute offers the study program technical business administration, which integrates a sound education in business administration with selected engineering disciplines, defining a specific competence profile for its graduates at the intersection between commercial and technical problems. Furthermore, the Institute of Business Administration - in cooperation with the University of Hohenheim – offers the study program information systems.
The Institute of Business Administration is involved in a variety of interdisciplinary teaching and research collaborations both within the University of Stuttgart and together with external institutions. The BWI is a member of the Graduate School for advanced Manufacturing Engineering (GSaME) which is promoted within the scope of the German Federal and State Excellence Initiative.
BWI’s research is characterized by problem-orientation, methodological rigor and theoretical foundation. In addition, the BWI maintains intense practice-related contacts with medium-sized and large companies particularly in the Stuttgart region. The knowledge and personnel exchange between the BWI and other institutions of the University of Stuttgart and the Stuttgart region are an integral part of BWI’s self-perception, as are research and teaching which meet strict national and international standards.
