Welcome to the IHK-Chair of Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises

The IHK-Chair of Small and Medium Sized-Enterprises was founded in the year of WHU's 30th anniversary 2014. Under the leadership of Professor Dr. Christina Günther, it strenghtens the profile of the university in the fields of "transfer between science and practice" and "research on SME".

As a mediator for the transfer of knowledge between WHU and regional companies, the Chair places a special emphasis on the continuous exchange between science and practice. In joint projects, cooperative designed student theses and active networking with mutual business and unversity visits, this claim is consistently maintained.
