The Fourth Austrian Early Scholars Workshop in Management, cohosted by JKU Linz and WU Vienna, provided an opportunity for advanced PhD students and academics in early career stages to present their research and discuss it with colleagues and professors from international and Austrian universities.
In addition to facilitating intellectual exchange, this workshop supported the development of a global network of young graduates interested in management and organization studies from institutional, organizational and behavioral perspectives. It was targeted at early scholars who aim at a continued academic career in the fields of organization and management theory, strategy, innovation, entrepreneurship, organizational behavior or public management.
With faculty members’ strong background in institutional theory, the yearly workshop provides an environment particularly conducive to research inspired by institutional perspectives. However, it is open to and invites research that draws from a broad range of theoretical and methodological underpinnings.
