Curriculum Vitae

Jan Münch studied Business Administration in his Bachelor's and Master's degree at the University of Augsburg with a specialization in "Strategy and Information". Already in his bachelor studies he focused on the curriculum of the chair of Prof. Dr. Daniel Veit. In his bachelor thesis entitled "Entry strategies for platform-based markets in the age of digitization", he examined various strategies that companies utilize for entering platform-based markets. 


After completing his bachelor's degree, Jan Münch worked for Andreas Schmid Group for several years as Operations Manager and was significantly involved in the creation of a Corporate Innovation Lab. In his last position as authorized officer, he was responsible for the digitalization of the core organization, investments in early-stage start-ups and the development of new, digital-driven business units.


Alongside his professional career, Jan Münch completed a master's degree and further expanded his expertise in the field of information systems research at the chair of Prof. Dr. Daniel Veit. In the course of his master's thesis entitled "The impact of corporate entrepreneurship on dynamic capabilities", he shed light on the influence of corporate entrepreneurship initiatives - such as corporate labs - on the digital dynamic capabilities of their parent organization.


In a voluntary capacity, Jan Münch has been involved with Rotaract Germany for many years. Rotaract is part of the globally distributed Rotary Organization and is contributing to society in a charitable way beyond just collecting donations, especially with hands-on projects. He was president of the Rotaract Club Augsburg from 2018 to 2019. 


Since May 2022, Jan Münch is a research associate at the Chair of Information Systems and Management at the University of Augsburg.


His scientific interests lie primarily in sustainability aspects of digitalization as well as in the field of digital entrepreneurship.
