Keynote Speaker

Mark H. Moore


We are committed to teaching students and future value-oriented leaders that not only follow particular interests, but also focus on an organization’s contribution to the common good (Public Value). Our research links psychological and business management issues, especially in the areas of Public Value management, leadership, and competency diagnosis. We build holistic thinking approaches in the tradition of Peter Drucker , known as the father of modern management.

Founded in 1898, HHL is considered the oldest university-level business school in Germany. In the tradition of the “honorable businessman” its mission statement rests on the pillars of entrepreneurship, sustainability, and leadership.
