Prof. Dr. Jens Förderer

Bio: I am Assistant-Professor (Tenure Track W2-W3) of Innovation & Digitalization at the Technical University of Munich, TUM School of Management. There, I also serve as the Academic Program Director for the Bachelor in Management and Technology (TUM-BWL, Heilbronn Campus). I hold a B.Sc., M.Sc., and Dr. rer. pol. from the University of Mannheim, Business School.

Research: My team and I study platform business models, particularly with the goal to help firms and entrepreneurs to successfully design, launch, and manage digital platforms and ecosystems. We use massive datasets and apply econometric methods for causal inference, especially quasi-experiments. Our research contributes to the field of information systems.
My research has been published in leading scientific journals, including Management Science, Information Systems Research, and Information Systems Journal. I am the winner of the INFORMS Information Systems Research Best Paper of the Year Award (2018).
I review for various journals and institutions, including Management Science, Information Systems Research, and MIS Quarterly.
