Chair & Research

Prof. Dr. Stephanie Teufel holds the Chair of Management in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) which is part of the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences at the University of Fribourg (Switzerland). We focus primarly on three research areas. Each research area is connected to the other ones which allows us to create a high valuable scientific symbiosis. Our continuous research in the area of project management is aimed at developing new methods, structures and procedures to carry out projects more successfully.
