Testimonials from graduates of the Diginomics Research Group


“Bremen is a livable and lovable city with a long history. The distances within the city are short and there are many green spaces to relax after work.”


Dr. Aki Harima

Postdoctoral researcher and lecturer at the Chair in Small Business and Entrepreneurship at the University of Bremen, and member of the Diginomics Research Group


"In the Diginomics Research Group, I work with academics who bring diverse perspectives and methods to the topic of digitization. This interdisciplinarity is necessary to tackle the most recent challenges. The topic of digitization is too complex and urgent to be answered from a single technical perspective.“


Dr. Michèle Rieth

Research associate at the Chair of Business Psychology & Human Resource, and member of the Diginomics Research Group


“The Diginomics Research Group is a place for ideas and discussion. Regular events such as brownbag seminars and research talks offer a forum for the exchange of research ideas and discussion of the important issues of our time.”


Dr. Daniel Metko

Research associate in the field of Business Administration, in particular Empirical Capital Market Research and Derivatives, as well as member of the Diginomics Research Group

Research Foci
