About

Sebastian Händschke is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Chair of Business Administration/Organization, Leadership, and HRM at Friedrich Schiller University Jena. He studied "Staatswissenschaften" (social sciences, law, and economics) and philosophy as well as management at the University of Erfurt, Beloit College, the University of California (Berkeley), and at the London School of Economics and Political Science (supported with scholarships, e.g., by the DAAD and the HANIEL Foundation). In Erfurt, he was a pioneer insofar as he was among the first in Germany to earn a baccalaureus artium (B.A.), supplemented by a magister artium (M.A.) and a master of science (M.Sc.) in London. With a thesis on management knowledge and its transfer, he received his doctoral degree (Ph.D.) at Friedrich Schiller University Jena.

Sebastian Händschke is a member of the Academy of Management (AoM), the European Group of Organizational Studies (EGOS), and the international network New Institutionalism as well as the Digital Humanities Network at Friedrich Schiller University Jena. Also, Sebastian Händschke serves as reviewer and member of selection panels for postgraduate and PhD scholarships of the German Academic Exchange Foundation (DAAD) to northern and western Europe.

Currently, he is also a member of the research network "Microfoundations of Institutions", which is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and initiated by Prof. Dr. Jost Sieweke (VU Amsterdam), Prof. Dr. Patrick Haack (HEC Lausanne), and Prof. Dr. Lauri Wessel (FU Berlin).

 

Research

He is interested in new institutionalism and theories that conceptualize organizations as social actors as well as the diffusion and adoption of management concepts and the possibilities and opportunities that the emerging paradigm of computational social science holds for management and organization studies. That said, he is open to both qualitative and quantitative research on management and organization as well as conceptual studies. For Sebastian Händschke, results and implications of research in MOS are exciting in two senses: for the scientific analysis of organizations on one hand and for the practice of management and organizational design on the other.

Research interests

  • Management and organization theories in general (i.e., their diversity and plurality) and in particular theories of organizations-as-social-actors as well as phenomenological new institutional organization theory and its relations to the linguistic and cognitive sciences

  • Computational social science

  • Management and governance of private and public organizations

  • Entrepreneurial cognition and action as well as coping with entrepreneurial failure

  • Bridges between research and practice, esp. evidence-based management
