Markus Scholz, Endowed Professor of Corporate Governance and Business Ethics and Head of the Center for Corprorate Governance at the University of Applied Sciences Vienna (FH Wien), and Elisabeth Kübler, Head of the Institute of Competitiveness at Lauder Business School (LBS) will chair the European chapter of the Harvard MOC network in 2016-17

 

When Professor Michael E. Porter, one of the world’s leading business scholars, founded the Microeconomics of Competitiveness (MOC) Network at Harvard Business School in 2002, his key objective was to disseminate his trail-blazing scholarship on strategy and competitiveness to business students, companies and public decision-makers across the globe.

Since then 107 business schools have joined the MOC network, taught Harvard-based classes to over 50.000 students and created a lasting local impact through research, executive training and public outreach. The MOC network spearheads projects in the areas of economic development viewed from a bottom-up perspective, firm strategies, creating shared values, and cluster mapping.

The European MOC chapter advances the multifaceted regional efforts of the European affiliate institutions in research, teaching and outreach. Conjointly with regional MOC chapters in Latin America and Asia it bears strong responsibility both in implementing MOC locally and in shaping the future of the network.

European MOC partners are engaged in numerous prolific initiatives. Bringing these loose ends together and raising their visibility for a wider audience of stakeholders will be a core task of Markus Scholz’s and Elisabeth Kübler’s chairmanship. They will closely collaborate with the 2017-18 chairmans Emanuele Pizzurno and Fernando Alberti from LIUC Università Cattaneo in Castellanza, Italy. Furthermore, the University of Applied Sciences Vienna and Lauder Business School will join forces in organizing a conference on the topic of Business Ethics and Business Strategy in November 2016.
