Department: Business Administration
Duration: until August 31st 2018
Duties: Project: "Managing innovation efficiency in a knowledge-based economy: Hybrid strategies for variation and selection and the role of organizational capabilities". While firms may innovate and solve related problems in varied ways, the more efficient will use less time, effort, and other resources to do so. Innovation is inherently based on variation and selection which are attained by divergent or convergent knowledge creation and cognitive or experiential evaluation, respectively. This research, however, is based on the idea that efficient innovation results from a synthesized divergence and convergence of knowledge for variation and a joint cognitive and experiential evaluation for selection. This research has the goal to study the organizational capabilities to reconcile these conflicting demands
Minimum Requirements: Applicants should have excellent grades and a university graduate degree with a distinction of at least "magna cum laude" in Business Administration, Economics or a related discipline (e.g., Engineering or Natural Sciences ideally with a Business Minor).
