ORG Seminar

The regular seminar of the ORG-Group is an open research seminar which is jointly organized by the Chair of Organizational Economics, the Institute for Human Capital Management and the Institute for Strategy, Technology and Organization.

The seminar aims to facilitate the scientific interaction between professors, postdocs and Ph.D. students of the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and national and international visitings scholars about current research questions on organizations.

MBR-students who are writing a referee report as part of the Presentations & Report course can download the articles by external speakers on the LSF. Please note that we upload articles as soon as they are supplied to us by the authors, which can be as late as one week before the seminar. Also note that for some presentations there is not a paper available yet.
