The International Institute for Compliance is the first institute to deal with the core issues of the "Principles of Proper Corporate Governance and Supervision (GoU/GoÜ)". The Institute supports companies and organizations or their executives in top management in maintaining an overview of the complex requirements of numerous "interested parties", integrating them into the activities of management and supervisory bodies and thereby fulfilling legal responsibility and public expectations.
The institute has three pillars: Science, practice and further education and also has an extensive network of governance and compliance officers. It is a cooperation partner in the auditing and certification of companies on the basis of pragmatically oriented standards and in the training of compliance officers.
The Deggendorf Institute of Technology with this Institute has been the first university in the German-speaking area to deal with governance, risk and compliance management (GRC) as a competence centre beyond the university/individual chairs.
Governance, risk and compliance also in our Business Administration programme:
The accredited Master's programme in Risk and Compliance Management designed and initiated by Prof. Dr. Scherer has been established since 2009.
The Institute pursues an interdisciplinary and integrated approach: the disciplines of law, business administration, economics, psychology and sociology are to be taken into account in the regular subjects of study.
In addition, a solution was developed to eliminate the redundancies of the numerous "management system islands" that exist in practice (quality, occupational safety, environmental, IT security, risk, compliance, etc.). - Management System) and to map them in a single GRC system.
