Institute for Business Ethics and Sustainable Strategy:
Endowed Chair of Corporate Governance & Business Ethics

The leading business schools have firmly integrated the subject ‘Business Ethics’ into their curricula and have reinforced their research capacities in this field. This trend has been pioneered by FHWien der WKW. Collaborating with leading Austrian businesses facilitated the appointment of the Endowed Chair of Corporate Governance & Business Ethics, FH-Prof. Dr. Markus Scholz in 2012.

The endowed chair is anchored at the Institute for Business Ethics and Sustainable Strategy (IBES). IBES researches in the areas of “Business Ethics” and “Strategy”. Further information is available at

Institute for Business Ethics and Sustainable Strategy

We are grateful to our corporate partners:

  • Berndorf AG
  • Blaguss Reisen GmbH
  • KALLCO Bauträger GmbH
  • Kapsch Group
  • Josef Manner & Comp AG
  • Ulreich Bauträger GmbH

The Endowed Chair conducts interdisciplinary research in close cooperation with partner organizations (universities, business, government, NGOs). The team around Markus Scholz carries out basic-research projects, generates case studies and transfers the results of their research in application-oriented contexts. In various follow-up projects, the results are transferred into feasible recommendations for action, which are then implemented by businesses in their own projects. This example of a cooperation model between science and business makes a significant contribution to the training of future managers.
