Katherina Glac received her Ph.D. in business ethics and law from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and her B.A. and M.B.A. from Friedrich Alexander University in Germany. Glac’s research interests cover a variety of subject areas, including investor decision making, corporate governance, corporate social responsibility and privacy in social networking. Her research is published in the Journal of Business Ethics, Journal of Behavioral Finance, Journal of Business and Professional Ethics, Management International Review and other international publications.
Glac’s teaching philosophy emphasizes a learner-centered classroom environment in which students take an active role not only in shaping course material and assessment but also in teaching each other. She sees her role in the classroom as a coach, co-learner and active participant. The focus of instruction in her classes is on learning about one’s own values, goals and thought patterns as a basis for applying tools for improving critical decision making.more
