Area of research: International and strategic management with special emphasis on cross-cultural aspects.

Specialty: Antecedents of strategic success (e.g. performance of strategic alliances, performance implications of international diversity).
International job satisfaction (e.g. models, surveys, cross-cultural aspects).
Cultural values, and cultural competencies (e.g. cultural archetypes, cultural intelligence).
Quantitative research methodologies in international business (e.g. structural equation modelling, neural networks, panel regression).

Current Projects.:

  • Assess how to best organize global sourcing activities to become successful (see the preliminary results of our current research published as a working paper). 
  • Critically rethink the measurement of performance in designing IB-studies (see the pre-version of our article lately published in Critical Perspectives on International Business). 
  • Understand whether and how cultural intelligence impacts work-related outcomes (see our meta-analysis of which a short version will be published in the Academy of Management Best Paper Proceedings soon); in this regard, we invite researchers to contribute to our upcoming special issue on “The role of intercultural competence in European international management: Theory, measurement, antecedents, and outcomes” to be published in European Journal of International Management in 2018 (further information are in our call for papers).
  • Discover the ease and practicality of using structural equation modelling (SEM) to research into cause-effect models (e.g. on the determinants of customer loyalty, employee satisfaction) by using our (German) book on PLS-SEM. The book comes with a dataset and video tutorials (see our website, the publishers website offering further material, and our youtube-channel ).
