Award for Professors
Two professors of WFI Ingolstadt School of Management at KU are among the best performing business economists in the German-speaking area in a recent ranking of the magazine “WirtschaftsWoche”: Prof. Dr. Heinrich Kuhn (Chair of Supply Chain Management and Operations) and Prof. Dr. Thomas Mählmann (Chair of Finance and Banking) are listed among the 250 “long-term stars of business administration”.
The ranking focuses on scientific excellence: on behalf of WirtschaftsWoche, the Economic Research Institute of ETH Zurich and the Düsseldorf Institute for Competition Economics examined the publication data of over 3000 researchers. All publications in business management journals during their scientific career were recorded. For the evaluation, the reputation of these specialist media was weighted in a complicated procedure based on the journal ranking of the Verband der Hochschullehrer für Betriebswirtschaft (VHB). Books were not included in the evaluation.
Best Paper Award
The paper “Patient-Bed Allocation in Large Hospitals” by Fabian Schäfer, Manuel Walther and Alexander Hübner from the Chair of Supply Chain Management & Operations received the Young Scholar Best Paper Award at the third “International Conference on Health Care Systems Engineering” in Florence (Italy).
Doctoral student Fabian Schäfer convinced the Scientific Committee of the international conference with his lecture, which recognized this work as the best and most promising research among the Young Scholars. The paper will be published in the Springer Proceedings in Mathematics & Statistics. In the research paper, which was developed in cooperation with the Klinikum Ingolstadt, a planning procedure for the allocation of patients to hospital beds is presented.
