At the FEDE we believe that sound thinking leads to sound action. On this basis we founded our Research Institute – a thought laboratory dedicated to educational research, vocational training and emerging professions.
The FEDE’s Research Institute aims to show that sound thinking can help businesses innovate, transform their practice and increase their efficacy; that knowledge should serve education and employment; and that grey matter is of inestimable benefit for contemporary and future businesses.
In this spirit, the Doctoral School of the FEDE’s Research Institute offers applied research programmes: FEDE DBA (Doctor of Business Administration) degrees.
Via its research, its publications and its close ties with the business world, the FEDE’s Research Institute – an international community of almost 1000 PhDs and international experts – provides a fresh perspective on managerial practice in Europe and internationally. It does so by encouraging open thinking on managerial practice; by addressing topics such as social engagement, risk, trust and generational changes; by monitoring and promoting research on how social change affects management; and by exploring issues arising as a result of contemporary innovation, transition and transformation.
