Back to all faculty


Dr. Lüdeke’s research areas are international business strategies based on diaspora networks, and the effects of spatial, socio-economic and temporal distance on professional networks, in particular in the field of corporate governance. He is also interested in advanced empirical research methods to observe potential unobservables.

After graduating in the field of Business Administration from the Free University of Berlin (2000), Holger Lüdeke worked as a research assistant. He was part of the team of Prof. Bresser, a former professor at NYU and City University of New York, who had returned to Berlin to take the chair of Strategic Management at the Free University. Dr. Lüdeke’s doctoral thesis of 2004 explored the question of how a long-term perspective influences a firm’s strategic balance of defending industry structure and opening up for innovation.

Dr. Lüdeke is co-owner of the consulting agency INWISO that has specialized in measuring the impact of cross-border cooperation and estimating international and intra-national (regional) market demand, in particular in the health sector. In 2005, he started to work as a Professor of Management at Touro College Berlin. Since then, Dr. Lüdeke has offered more than a dozen different courses in Management, Marketing and Business Policy on Touro campuses in Berlin and New York. As Dean of Undergraduate Programs (2009-2011) and a member of Touro Berlin’s senior management, Dr. Lüdeke has chaired committees responsible for business program accreditation and Touro Berlin’s institutional accreditation by the German Wissenschaftsrat. 

He has been involved in dozens of consulting reports advising public and private companies on marketing-related and logistical challenges, mainly concerning questions of cross-border alliances. His academic publications focus on innovative teaching approaches and discussions of research methods.
