CCGBE MISSION

We have particular research expertise in the areas of Corporate Citizenship, Business Ethics, Corporate Governance and Business Strategy. We offer academic teaching in these areas and constantly aim to establish a networking hub between parties with an interest in Corporate Governance and Business Ethics.

  • From Research to Practice

    We investigate a range of theoretical problems together with international researchers. Our findings are made available to different stakeholders – from private companies, to public institutions, non-profit- and non-governmental organizations. This process helps us to provide relevant recommendations to support successful industry projects.

  • Connecting Research and Practice

    We see ourselves as a hub between researchers and representatives of the practicing professions in the field of Corporate Governance and Business Ethics. We therefore organize a range of events, which are addressed both to the international research community as well as to representatives of different professional sectors. Together this creates an impact beyond the scientific community and into civil society.

     

  • Teaching Corporate Responsibility

    We provide courses on Corporate Governance, Business Strategy and Business Ethics. Our teaching conveys knowledge from theory through to practice. Frequent lectures from internationally renowned academics and leading representatives from different industries complement the teaching offered. Our courses are integrated into all of the Master’s programs at the University of Applied Sciences for Management & Communication. Our senior researchers are also engaged at other international universities.

    FHWien der WKW is a member of PRME

    Article Markus Scholz: Responsibility of the pharmaceutical industry in the Corona crisis

    The pharmaceutical industry is particularly challenged in the Corona crisis – also in ethical terms. In order to meet its responsibility, cooperation and self-control are needed. Prof. Dr. Markus Scholz (Head of Center for Corporate Governance & Business Ethics at WKW’s Vienna University of Applied Sciences) and N. Craig Smith (INSEAD Chair in Ethics and Social Responsibility at INSEAD, Academic Director ESRI) outline a path in this direction in their current MIT Sloan Management Review article “In the Face of a Pandemic, Can Pharma Shift Gears?”.

    Guest commentary Markus Scholz: Industry needs “pooling” of all forces

    How to deal with the increased demand for drugs in the Corona crisis?
    The pharmaceutical industry is particularly challenged in the corona crisis – also from an ethical point of view. Self-control is needed to prevent the best bidder principle for drugs. In addition, politics must reform competition rules, says Markus Scholz (Head of Center for Corporate Governance & Business Ethics) in a guest commentary on science.orf.at.
