Institute for Governance, Management, Risk & Compliance (GoMaRiCom)

As the first institute with such technical level, the International Institute for Governance, Management, Risk & Compliance (GoMaRiCom) deals with the core issues of “Principles of Proper Corporate Governance and Monitoring (GoU /GoÜ)”.

The institute supports companies and organisations resp. their managers in top management to keep an overview of the complex demands of the numerous interested parties, to integrate those demands in the activities of company management and supervisory body and therefore to fulfill legal responsibility and meet public expectations.

The institute contains three pillars: Science, Practice and Further Training. In addition, it has a broad network of governance and compliance representatives. The institute is cooperation partner in auditing/ certification of companies by means of pragmatically oriented standards and in the training of compliance representatives.

Deggendorf Institute of Technology, together with the institute, will be the first university in German-speaking countries to deal with Governance, Risk and Compliance Management (GRC) as competence centre beyond university / individual professorships.

Governance, Risk and Compliance also in the regular programme Business Administration with the following subjects:

  • Corporate Law and Governance
  • Labour Law and Business Continuity Management
  • Compliance in Procurement
  • Major Field of Study Bank, Financial and Risk Management
  • Integrative Business Administration and Risk Management
  • Risk Management
  • Risk Management and Application Software for Controlling and Accounting
  • Bank and Risk Management
  • Financial Industry and Risk Management and Insurances

Already since 2009, the accredited continuing Master programme Risk and Compliance Management has been established that was conceptualised and initiated by Prof. Dr. Scherer.

The institute uses an interdisciplinary and integrated approach: This is how the disciplines Law, Business Administration, Economics, Psychology and Sociology shall be considered also in regular subjects.

In addition, a solution was developed to eliminate and map in one single GRC system the redundancies of the numerous “Management System Islands” that exist in practice (quality and working security, environmental, IT security, risk, compliance, etc. management system).
