Funded by the German Karl Schlecht Foundation, the Wittenberg-Center for Global Ethics and the Leadership Excellence Institute Zeppelin (LEIZ) jointly offer a doctoral program for outstanding PhD students whose research interest addresses the issue of responsible leadership in business in a global context.

The program is part of an innovative platform format which combines the academic expertise of leading professors of business ethics, the know-how of internationally operating companies, and the perspectives of civil society. Specifically, we grant PhD scholarships and maintain a dialogue platform between academia, business practice and societal stakeholders.
