ESMT’s research concept, developed by the full-time Faculty, sets three major research areas which pertain to a certain area of expertise: - Leadership and Social Responsibility - European Competitiveness - Management of Technology There is considerable overlap between these areas of research, and many of the faculty members are working on several research areas or their interfaces.
