Vision and Mission


We are known as a leading interdisciplinary institution for reflecting on responsibility and social challenges in research and teaching.


In research and teaching, we combine disciplinary and interdisciplinary strengths to advance knowledge, entrepreneurial thinking, and responsible action and management for business and society.

The faculty is a member of the Global Business School Network (GBSN). GBSN is a non-profit organisation harnessing the strength of a network of leading business schools to address the critical need for skilled managers, entrepreneurs and leaders in the global south by increasing access to high-quality, locally relevant management education.



We are a member of AACSB International (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) and are on the way to international accreditation.

Since July 2019, Leuphana University has also been a member of the UN initiative "Principles for Responsible Management Education" (UnPrme). Joining the UN initiative is part of the project "Responsible Management Education in Business Administration", which started this year at the Faculty of Business and Economics.

The Global Business School Network is a nonprofit organization that partners with business schools, industry, foundations and development agencies to improve access to quality, locally relevant management education in the global south.
