The research program of the Research Center for Information, Organization and Management (IOM) deals with questions at the thematic interface between new technologies/digitalization/artificial intelligence and classic topics of business administration and organization. The most important thematic research fields include the delimitation of companies, corporate networks/business webs, telecommunications, and regulation.

The focus is on the analysis and design of information and communication systems as well as the exploration of organizational structures, processes, and knowledge management. Aspects of digitalization, data analysis, and sustainability are also taken into account. The aim of the research is to generate practice-relevant insights for companies, public institutions, and society, thus contributing to the improvement of the organization and management of information.
