Academic research has an important role to play in giving you the best education possible. In fact, the best teaching is always based on extensive and cutting-edge research, and at LBS we also try to involve our students in that very research itself. The LBS curriculum stipulates the importance of knowledge transfer from research to teaching, the instruction of research skills and the involvement of master students in ongoing projects.


Our thriving research department is particularly focused on Diversity Challenges within International Management and, more generally, questions of normative impact and norm production in organizations. Our team of committed researchers – composed of both multidisciplinary academics and corporate practitioners – conducts projects on applied business-related problems. Currently, for example, we are particularly investigating the interaction of people from diverse backgrounds at the workplace, in learning environments and in global business relationships. Diversity Challenges within International Management also constitute an inspiring reality and a research subject which has not yet been sufficiently examined in Austria.


The LBS Research Department stands for theoretical reflection, methodological precision, and high potential for innovation. We routinely employ a wide range of quantitative (explanatory) and qualitative (exploratory) research methods. By the same token, we support all research projects during their stages of conceptualization, acquisition of external funding, project management, and the publication and dissemination of key research findings. All stakeholders involved benefit from transnational collaboration with enterprises, non-profit organizations and other research institutes. Our key target groups are decision-makers in international management, entrepreneurship and policy-making.


On these pages, you are invited to explore ongoing and completed research projects, and get an overview of completed master theses. Furthermore, please take a look at our quarterly Variety Fair and the Mobiliversity Blog, where we seek to spark the interest of a wide audience in our research activities. We look forward to your feedback and suggestions for co-operation. Please send your inquiries to
