Institute for Business Ethics (IFU)
The Institute for Business Ethics is engaged in Corporate Social Responsibility. Business Ethics addresses the fundamental conflict between corporate success and the morale behind the business and contributes to the coping with it by means of promoting socially and ecologically oriented activities. The main focus is on values and behaviors which considerably strengthen the company’s shareholder value and its innovative power.
We want to enable our stakeholders to get related to each other respectfully in order to campaign for more equitably, equal opportunities and a sustainable future by means of long-term projects. We educate our students to become socially, culturally and politically committed entrepreneurs by teaching them the attitude and capabilities to serve the general interest and to lead and act accordingly.
We offer our students a practical training in ethics (Service Learning) which develops their cognitive, linguistic, social and intercultural competencies in many dimensions. This includes both Community Service Learning (Do it!) and professional Service Learning (individual/Educare projects.
