Understanding the economic and technological value added

The intersection of business administration and technology, on which the Institute of Business Administration (BWI) focuses, is of central importance for Germany and its technologically leading economic clusters with a high proportion of industrial production. As networking and internationalization of production and related functions increase, companies need to be able to understand and shape the resulting greater complexity of value-added systems. In business practice, business administration and technology cannot be separated. The BWI therefore focuses on key elements of the economic and technical coordination of value creation networks. The individual departments of the BWI map the functional and management-relevant core elements of such value-added networks.
