Steinbeis Transfer Institute School of Governance, Risk & Compliance


The School of Governance, Risk & Compliance (School GRC) was founded in 2007 as a research and training establishment at Steinbeis University Berlin, a private, state-approved university. The disciplines of corporate governance, risk management, compliance, and fraud management come together at the school.
School GRC runs a Master of Business Administration program in partnership with Steinbeis University, providing education to specialists and managers that not only adheres to high standards, but also places a strong emphasis on practical application.

In collaboration with the Steinbeis+Akademie, it also offers certification courses through its sister institution, School CIFoS (responsible for the Master of Arts in Criminal Investigation), to provide a variety of certification courses, such as training to become a Certified Compliance Expert (CCE) and a Certified Investigation Expert (CIE).

To offer companies the required degree of flexibility, numerous seminars are provided as individual courses.

Training and the educational program provide specialists and people aiming to become specialists with the necessary knowledge, plus access to the required network of personal contacts.

A defining feature of the projects and research carried out by School GRC is the close link to practical application and the actuality of research findings. School GRC is a leading establishment in the field of governance, risk, compliance, and fraud management. In addition to developing standards and formulating solutions to existing challenges, it is also involved in preventative work on future challenges. Setting up collaborative projects and research allows companies to become actively integrated in this process, also providing them with tried-and-tested solutions.
