Competence Center for Corporate Governance & Business Ethics

In cooperation with leading businesses, the first Endowed Chair of Corporate Governance & Business Ethics in Austria was established at FHWien der WKW in 2012. Following this, the Competence Center for Corporate Governance & Business Ethics (CCGBE) was founded in 2014. The center takes into account the increasing need of businesses as well as international standards in teaching and research.

A large part of CCGBE’s work is carried out in collaboration with international universities, NGOs, government agencies and leading Austrian and international companies. This exemplary partnership model makes a significant contribution to the training of future business leaders.

The Competence Center team works in an interdisciplinary manner and carries out basic-research projects, generates case studies and transfers the results of their research in application-oriented contexts. We are currently working as a team on projects with the following areas of focus:

  • Business strategy and corporate governance
  • Political corporate social responsibility
  • Business ethics for small and medium-sized enterprises
  • Relationship between theory and professional practice in business studies
  • Academic governance issues
  • „City of Vienna Competence Team for Sustainable, Strategic & Opportunity-Oriented Management of SMEs“
