Professor Rainer Michael Rilke ist seit April 2024 Professor für Verhaltensökonomik an der WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management. Er begann seine akademische Laufbahn mit einem Diplom in Volkswirtschaftslehre an der Universität Bonn und promovierte später in Ökonomie an der Universität zu Köln. Professor Rilke hat an renommierten Institutionen geforscht, darunter das Program on Negotiation an der Harvard University und das CREED an der Universität Amsterdam. Vor seiner aktuellen Position war er als Assistenzprofessor an der WHU tätig und brachte seine Expertise auch als Senior Consultant bei Baker Tilly Roelfs ein.

Sein Forschungsinteresse konzentriert sich auf Verhaltens- und Experimentelle Ökonomik sowie Verhaltensethik.
