Prof. Dr. iur. Markus Ogorek (l.) welcomed Prof. Dr. Claus Hipp at EBS Universität.

Entrepreneurs and personalities from various sectors regularly visit EBS Universität für Wirtschaft und Recht to share their experiences with the students. Last Thursday, University President Markus Ogorek welcomed Prof. Dr. Claus Hipp, one of Germany’s most prominent and influential business personalities, at Schloss Reichartshausen in Oestrich-Winkel in front of around 100 students and lecturers.

Prof. Dr. Claus Hipp, since 1968 managing partner of the baby food manufacturer HiPP, stands like no other for sustainable and ethical entrepreneurship. For more than 50 years, the family business from Pfaffenhofen is committed to a conscious and sensitive engagement with nature, animals, people and the economy. During his lecture “Ethics in business life - the honourable businessman”, Prof. Dr. Claus Hipp discussed how economic and ethical requirements can be coordinated in business operations and how he, as an entrepreneur, exemplifies responsible treatment of the environment. For him, economics, ecology and ethical-social issues are inseparably linked. Hipp criticized the ever-growing egoism and the decreasing common interest. The goal should be a respectful and positive interaction with each other. Prof. Dr. Claus Hipp also told anecdotes from his eventful career as a committed entrepreneur and passionate artist. Following his lecture, the sympathetic entrepreneur answered the curious questions of the students.
