The Wittenberg Center for Global Ethics (WCGE) hosts the Doctoral Program “Ethics and Responsible Leadership in Business” (ERL). For admissions in October 2018, the program will award up to six doctoral scholarships.
Four of the fellowships are financed by The Karl Schlecht Foundation (KSG), and two are financed by the Stiftung der Deutschen Wirtschaft (SDW).
We are looking for talented, motivated graduate students who have, preferably, already gained work experience (KSG scholarships) and/or are socially engaged (SDW scholarships). Their research interests should relate to responsible leadership in a global business context. In addition to providing the students with subject-specific qualifications, the program aims to embed students’ research into a broader theo-retical and socio-political framework. An essential component of the program is a dialog platform, which connects the academic expertise of leading business ethics professors, the know-how of international corporations, and the perspectives of civil society actors. The program promotes research that is theo-retically well-informed, as well as practically relevant. Promoted research offers feasible solutions for how to do business responsibly in globalized markets.
