Center for Corporate Governance and Business Ethics


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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
