Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - School of Business and Economics

HANIEL Guest Professorship

In the context of the guest professorship, scientists are to be won for temporary stays at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin who have dealt with the subject of entrepreneurship very intensively and are therefore suitable for extending the students´ knowledge on the one hand, and for fertilizing the research on professors´ and assistants´ level, on the other hand.

Possible focal points of these guest scientists comprise the history of entrepreneurship, the research concerning the personality of entrepreneurs and the entrepreneurial decision behavior, the meaning of entrepreneurship in the economic process, in particular for the generation and penetration of innovations, as well as guidance techniques and organizational questions.

With respect to teaching, students are to be introduced to entrepreneurial questions and their solutions. Furthermore, basic insights into the genesis and the implications of entrepreneurship are to be imparted.

With respect to research, common projects of scientists of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and guest scientists are sought. Joint publications are to be the center of their cooperation.

In order to meet the goals of the guest professorship, an intensive integration of the guest scientist in the teaching and research activities of the Business School is essential.
