A comprehensive understanding of decision-making and management processes in a business context plays a key role to ensure sustainable and persistent success. In order to develop this understanding, an integrated view of decision-making, motivational and learning processes is necessary. Using an interdisciplinary perspective with special emphasis on business management and psychology we focus on research topics that are equally of theoretical and practical relevance, and consider a connection between basic and application-oriented research to be especially important. Methodologically, the chair focuses on empirical approaches. Moreover, conceptual theory formation is a top priority.
