The IMC is pleased to announce that Vera Linke has been appointed Assistant Professor of Management Accounting and Control at our Institute from 01 October 2023. Vera Linke obtained her Master of Arts in Sociology at the University Bielefeld. She subsequently completed her dissertation at the same university in 2020, analyzing how insurance markets expanded once new organizational models of insurance emerged. In addition to the field of insurance, Vera has also worked on public sector organizations.
In her research, Vera explores the interrelation between calculations and organizational structures and processes. She has used historical discourse analysis to understand long-term and large-scale changes in the way organizations observe themselves and account to others. Now, at WHU, she aims to continue qualitative research to further illuminate the social dynamics of management accounting.
