Endowed Chair of Corporate Governance & Business Ethics

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.

FHWien der WKW has been developing Corporate Governance & Business Ethics into its own research cluster since 2014. This takes into account the increasing need for business and international standards in teaching and research.

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.
