Competence Center for Corporate Governance & Business Ethics

First Endowed Chair of Corporate Governance & Business Ethics in Austria

In cooperation with leading national and international companies, the first Endowed Chair of Corporate Governance & Business Ethics in Austria was established at FHWien der WKW in 2012. Subsequently, the Competence Center for Corporate Governance & Business Ethics (CCGBE) was founded in 2014. The center is a response to the increasing need of companies regarding answers to urgent questions in the field of business ethics as well as international standards in teaching and research.

The center focuses on the following main research topics:

  • Strategic CSR and Sustainability Management
  • Political CSR and Corporate Citizenship
  • Ethical Leadership

Research projects are typically conducted in collaboration with internationally renowned institutions (e.g., INSEAD, Wharton Business School, University of  St. Gallen).
