Welcome to the
Institute for Strategy, Technology and Organization (ISTO)!



ISTO – where strategy and technology meet: What does digital transformation mean for business? What are the implications for a company’s strategic management? Which organizational structures enable innovation and sustainable competitive advantage? At the ISTO, we are trying to gain insights into questions like these.

Value for science and practice: By applying a broad range of methods (for example, econometric and formal-mathematical models), our goal is to contribute to the research community and develop recommendations for management decisions.

Excellent training for entrepreneurial personalities: In teaching, we provide our students with relevant specialist and methodological knowledge during lectures, seminars, and project courses while, thus, enabling students to make responsible and scientifically well-founded strategic decisions.

Encouraging enthusiasm for research: science goes beyond writing papers. Therefore, we offer young scientists the opportunity to develop expertise while becoming part of the international research community. To this end, at ISTO, PhD students as well as postdocs are intensively prepared for their career in science.
