With a total of 22 chairs and 2 juniorprofessorships representing the fields of Business Administration, Economics and Wirtschaftsinformatik, research at the faculty covers a wide diversity of topics and is characterized above all by an interdisciplinary and distinctly methodology-oriented perspective. More recently the research has increasingly shifted focus towards a link to technical disciplines. This is reflected by the work of the chairs of Business Informatics, Energy Economics, Logistics, Entrepreneurship and Innovation, and Industrial Management. Furthermore, the technical orientation is represented by the young researchers group "Wissens- und Technologietransfer", which is financed by resources of the Excellence Initiative. In addition, the faculty has a social-scientific orientation which is represented by the chairs of Economics, Business and Economics Education, and partly Business Administration. The School of Civil and Environmental Engineering offers possibilities to establish and develop both profiles. Next to the Faculty of Business and Economics, the faculties of Architecture, Civil Engineering,Environmental Sciences and Transport and Travel Science "Friedrich List" form the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the TU Dresden. The faculty is at the same time involved in various competence centers and central units of TU Dresden, among them the Centre for Sustainability Assessment and Policy, the Centre for Demographic Change, the ifo Institut, the Health Economics Center (GÖZ) and the School of International Studies (ZIS).
Former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan was an honorary doctor of the faculty of Business and Economics at TU Dresden - alongside further representatives of international politics and business. This award was more than just a symbol: The cosmopolitan atmosphere which reigns here is also reflected in bi-national degrees with universities in Strasbourg, France and Trento, Italy as well as diverse university partnerships. International cooperation is also promoted by way of annual awards. The Dr. Händel Prize, for example, enables scientific staff to conduct research abroad, and permits invitations to be extended to visiting scientists. The Professor Endriss-Prize, on the other hand, offers financial assistance to students wishing to spend a period of their studies in another country.
