New Members: Comillas Pontifical University, Spain and Cologne Business School, Germany
In the last two months, ABIS has expanded its network with two new academic members - Comillas Pontifical University, Spain and Cologne Business School, Germany.
ABIS has invited the Chair for Ethics in Business and Economics, a research group of the Comillas Pontifical University, Spain to its network. The main purpose of the Chair has been to bridge the relationship between the academic and business worlds, fostering the debate around ethical and socially responsible management.
Cologne Business School, Germany is a proud new member to the ABIS network: "This membership means a strategic expansion of our global network and at the same time a further strengthening of our commitment to sustainability" said Prof. Dr. Markus Raueiser, CBS Vice president for internationalization and international affairs.
"The extensive know-how of CBS in the field of the sustainable management can be shared with partners from all over the world. At the same time we receive new impetus to the development of our own teaching and research approaches - benefiting especially the students" said Prof. Dr. René Schmidpeter, owner of Dr. Jürgen Meyer Endowed Chair for International Business Ethics and CSR.
