Research in the Department Corporate Development deals with evidence-based management decisions. We combine methods from management research, behavioral economics, and psychology. Researchers in the Area publish in outstanding scientific journals such as the American Economic Review, Management Science, Science, Organization Science, the Journal of Labor Economics, and the Strategic Management Journal. The Area's cutting-edge research finds expression not least in its participation in research networks such as the Cluster of Excellence ECONtribute or the Center of Excellence for Social and Economic Behavior (C-SEB) or the Key Research Initiative Behavioral Management Science, in which Area staff members teach and conduct research. One focus of our work is the evaluation of management methods in field experiments in companies of different industries. In addition, we examine the opportunities and risks of new forms of work (e.g. platform work).
