Prof. Michael Faustino Bauer

Professor for Business Administration, in particular Managerial Accounting

Before teaching at the HWR Berlin I gathered many years of experience in consulting, as a manager, and in professional training for strategy, business development and financial steering.
I am leading classes about Digital Business & Technology Management for the MBA program at the Berlin Professional School (AMBA accredited) where we work a lot with company partners.
My diploma (M.Sc. Industrial Engineering, 1996) is from KIT - Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, and my doctorate from WHU Otto Beisheim School of Management, Vallendar (2001).
I believe in people… and in interdisciplinary teamwork with fun and agility, also fostering analytical excellence and cross-functional collaboration. I am looking forward to working with you!
