Research in Business Administration
Business administration is quite a young field. The first professorship was installed at Stockholm School of Economics in 1911. Business administration is today the largest subjects at Swedish universities and university colleges, counted in the number of student places.
Central research questions within Business Administration include among others organizational strategies and decision-making, financing, management control and accounting, as well as various forms of organizing. The abilities of companies and individuals to handle change and innovation processes, the procurement of resources and disposal of products and services are other central research questions. The common denominator for this broad range of research questions is the organizational perspective.
The research in Business Administration at Linköping University covers various topics such as strategy and strategic change, management control, entrepreneurship, public organization and work life, financial accounting, non-profit organizations, leadership and human resource management, knowledge integration and innovation, project management and project organizations, and international management. The division of Business Administration is located at the Department for Management and Engineering (IEI).
