WHU Research Seminar

The WHU Research Seminar is an integral part of the research at WHU. The participants will be acquainted with current research from various disciplines in business and economics through academic presentations, critical reflection and discussions.

Researchers from WHU and other universities present their recent research and discuss it with the audience, ranging from problem descriptions to models, preliminary solutions and final results. The recommendations that come out of the discussions assist the researchers in their work and give impulses for the doctoral students’ own research activities with respect to content as well as methodology.
