Aim of Study

In recent years, compliance has become an important keyword. This is also due to some incidents in the past, where companies did not stick to respective regulations. Therefore, various legal standards were implemented to regain the public confidence, to improve the conduct of business, to encourage ethical behavior of managers and to secure transparency.

In times of growing global networking, the need for sound ethical behavior has become an essential aspect of corporate activi¬ties. To secure these standards, compliance has become one main topic for conduct guidelines for all companies performing on the global platform.

Compliance asks for the implementation of a comprehensive system that makes the employees abide by internal and external rules of the game, which are not only legal prescriptions but include also ethical aspects. That is the reason why corporations pass Codes of Conduct and the appropriate policies and procedures to make them living documents. Hence, compliance management has become a strategic medium to reach the goals of risk and reputation management and to enhance efficiency and effectiveness worldwide.

The aim of this EMBA is to qualify executives that work in a highly competitive global environment. Therefore high potentials are supposed to take part at this EMBA which is an interdisciplinary study that focuses holistically on management problems under the perspective of compliance and corporate governance. If companies want to continue to achieve exceptional results in all their fields of activity, they have the duty to systematically and thoroughly qualify their employees.

The EMBA in Compliance and Corporate Governance is a more application-oriented, non-consecutive, executive degree program that builds on an undergraduate vocational degree or a degree from Germany or abroad that is recognized as being equivalent.

The objective of the program is to convey in-depth skills in the areas of values-oriented business management, in particular compliance and corporate governance. This comprises the entirety of all reasonable measures that constitute corporate behaviour compliant to rules, companies’ organisational members and their members of staff with regard to all statutory commands or prohibitions, as well as the compliance of business conduct with all social guidelines and moral concepts, with moral and ethics and the methods and tools used to manage and oversee organisations.
