Personal information

Diemo Urbig has joined the Department of Management and Organisation at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam as part-time (10%) Associate Professor of Entrepreneurship in May 2019, aside of his current main job at the University of Wuppertal. He is an external research fellow at David Audretsch’s Institute for Development Strategies at Indiana University (USA). Following Master degrees in computer science and management at Humboldt University Berlin, Diemo received his PhD from Radbound University Nijmegen for his thesis on “Outcome Expectancies and the Interaction of Efficacy and Control Beliefs: Life, Work, and Entrepreneurship” in 2010. Research visits led him to Florida International University (2009), the Wharton Risk Management & Decision Processes Center at the University of Pennsylvania (2010), and to us at the VU in 2018.  

Using experiments, surveys, and simulations and with a strong methods-related curiosity, he studies cognition, learning, and decision making in organizational, entrepreneurial, and international contexts. He currently works on various aspects of starting a business aside of a paid job, on entrepreneurial and innovation strategies, and on various aspects of cognition and decision making ranging from entrepreneurs’ competitive and social behaviors to decision-making in foreign language contexts. Diemo has published in journals such as Journal of Management, Journal of Business Venturing, and Research Policy. He is a member of various editorial boards, served as guest editor for a special issue in the Journal of Business Venturing, and serves as editor for the Small Business Economics Journal.
