Research at SRH Hochschule Berlin

At the forefront – Research at our university

At our university we qualify driven and talented students in our future-oriented study programmes. Our teaching approach and methodology are supported by our research.

"Our university combines knowledge of students from over 70 nations, employees with high levels of education, professors with proven research expertise, companies with different profiles, politicians and media experts with different experiences. Together we can identify and explore new trends and developments and find solution for the economy and society.

Prof. Dr. Victoria Büsch, President of the University and Vice President Research

Strategic focus on fundamental & applied research

At SRH Hochschule Berlin it is our assumption that basic and applied research depend on each other mutually. Our research activities are combined within the cluster "Analyse von dynamischen Veränderungen von Struktur und Prozessen in Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft" (Analysis of dynamic changes of structures and processes in the economy and society).

Our academic methodology that is guided by the following four principles is leading the way for our research:

We want to conduct our research freely, autonomously, independently and critically. Our research is not guided by specific approaches, schools of thought, methodologies or the like and therefore is free of ideologies, interdisciplinary and undogmatic. We see doubt as a principle and constructive criticism as an essential corrective.

We want to carry out our research in a creative and beneficial manner. Our research activities are aimed at finding solutions for perceived scientific issues as well as specific real world business problems. The problem-solving potential of our solutions is the defining quality factor of our research.

We want to conduct our research in a comprehensible way. Our research should be understood easily. Thus the communicative principles of our research are plausability, intersubjectivity and the connection to the knowledge gained. The collected primary data is archived.

We want to do our research honourably. Our research complies with our academic code of honour. It is our ethical obligation, as researchers, to refrain from scientific misconduct (i.a. plagiarism, data forgery, assessment bias) and to report violations immediately.

With our research activities we aim to explore the impact of dynamic change processes and create benefits for the economy and society with our application-oriented solutions.
