Institute for International Strategic Management & Innovations (SMI)
The SMI is a joint initiative between Prof. Dr. Ronald Glasberg and Prof. Dr. Michael Hartmann of SRH Hochschule Berlin with Dr. Reinhard Messenböck and Jens Jahn of The Boston Consulting Group.
The Institute for International Strategic Management & Innovation conducts research projects that provide practical insights and recommendations for companies based on emerging developments and transformations, for example in Banking & Financial Services, Renewable Energy, Smart Home & Living. Depending on its development phase, each firm has to master different challenges:
- Companies need data for a meaningful development and establishment in the market. The SMI supports companies by analyzing trends and evaluating data from international markets and competitive environments.
- In addition, companies facing dynamic and growing international competition. In this context, the institute develops solutions for strategic, personnel, financial and technological challenges. The aim of these solutions are to maintain and expand business positions in the market through innovative business models.
Tasks & Objectives
The Institute tackles and solves various scientific questions via small research projects as well as international collaborative research. At the same time, the research network expands into industries, the international research community and political institutions. Students have the opportunity to take an active role in the research, e.g. in projects or thesis. The research results are published and distributed to research workshops, symposia and conferences.
Transfer of Research into Academic and Practical Settings
Current research results are part of seminars and discussed with students and professionals. In the bachelor and master programmes are questions related to research of the SMI crucial and give opportunities to young scholars to analyse the impact of current innovations on business and society in thesis and projects. Transfer of the results into politics and practical settings result from participation in national and international conferences in addition to general exchange via professional and academic networks.
