The subject of her work is on “Resource Recombination in Firms from a Dynamic Capability Perspective”.

Examiner Prof. Dr. David Morris, Professor for “Business Development” at the University of Coventry und prof. dr. Peter van der Sijde, Professor on “Adaption of new technology; bringing technology to the market” at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam, were highly impressed. „Excellent work! Furthermore there are a number of finding in the dissertation, which are worthwhile to be published separately in International Journals. In the dissertation those findings were just used for the all-embracing objective.“ said Professor Morris. He and Professor van der Sijde congratulated Dr Kurzhals.

The two promotors are more than proud of this assessment: „We really didn’t expect such an honorary result, it is very rare.“ said Professor Baaken of the Science-to-Business Marketing Centre of Münster University of Applied Sciences. However, the thesis brings together knowledge from two different theories in a very innovative and comprehensive way. Congratulations to Dr Kerstin Kurzhals.
