Areas of Specialisation

Business Ethics, Corporate Governance, Corporate Responsibility

Areas of Competence

Business Ethics, Corporate Governance, Corporate Responsibility, Management and Organisational Theory, Ethics

My fields of Business Ethics research are Corporate Governance and Corporate Responsibility. Corporate Governance is defined as leadership and control of a firm, Corporate Responsibility refers to companies taking responsibility for their impact on society. I am deeply interested in the question how to implement Business Ethics topics in the organisational and management theory. My goal is to provide a “Normative Theory of the Firm” as a kind of a “Philosophy of Management”-Programme. This is the theoretical side of science. As a Management Partner I am challenging theories in order to make them fruitful for real management problems and to further develop our economy and their organisations.
