Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
The Master´s program is under the patronage of the association “Versammlung Eines Ehrbaren Kaufmanns zu Hamburg e.V.” (VEEK). The association argues for the consideration of generally accepted ethical principles and the principle of equity and good faith within the scope of valid laws, and advocates the omission of actions that are not consistent with the standard of commercial reliance. The discussion of business ethics of various economic themes is consistently highlighted. In addition, every student is accompanied by a mentor of the VEEK association during the duration of the program
The Master’s Program covers the whole spectrum of business administration. The three cross sectoral themes Internationality, Governance and Respectability are specific for this courses of studies. They are not only mentioned in the titles of some modules or partial-modules for discussion purposes. Beyond that, the other modules and partial-modules refer to the cross sectoral themes consistently, e.g., International Marketing is also considering the discussion of business ethics.
