About the Department of International Business

The Department of International Business at the Faculty of Business and Economics at Tübingen University strives to generate internationally respected research in International Business and to disseminate relevant knowledge to scholars, students and the corporate world.




We focus on publications in internationally respected scholarly journals, next to more practitioner-oriented journals and edited books. In addition, we actively participate in conferences, workshops and research seminars and also regularly organize such events. We are proud to have received numerous prestigious research awards for publications and conference contributions.



Corporate engagement

We are actively seeking contact with companies and individual practitioners who are interested in our expertise in cross-cultural management, international HRM and headquarter-subsidiary relations. We are particularly grateful to companies and individual practitioners who are willing to support us in our research; in our teaching; financially; or logistically.




We aim at delivering lectures, seminars and tutorials which our students find interesting, relevant and engaging. We employ innovative, interactive and hopefully stimulating teaching approaches such as case studies, simulation exercises and company projects. Furthermore, we produce regularly teaching related material such as case studies and are proud to have received prestigious awards in this area as well.
