In the Sustainable Economy Department, Jutta holds the Chair for Sustainable Business Management and is the course director for the equivalent Master’s programme.

In addition to her work in the academic training of future decision-makers in business, she sees her contribution to the sustainable transformation of the economy in various practice-oriented research projects.

Her focus is on corporate responsibility, business and human rights, sustainable supply chain management, sustainability strategies of companies and states as well as the green economy.

“For me, it is critical to train the business leaders of tomorrow in the real challenges of everyday business life and, at the same time, bring the latest findings from scientific discussion into consulting projects. The connection between the HNEE and adelphi is ideal for this.”
