I am the Vice-rector for Research of the Budapest Business School University of Applied Sciences, an associate professor at the Faculty of International Business and Management, and the chair of the Ethics Committee of the BBS. I graduated as a Certified Economist specialized in Business Economics from the University of Miskolc. During my university years, I successfully completed a semester at the European Business School in Germany. I obtained my Ph.D. degree in Management and Organizational Sciences at the Doctoral School of “Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice” of the University of Miskolc. I spent my research year at the University of St. Gallen (HSG). I wrote my PhD thesis about the “Ethical Sensitivity of Hungarian Companies”. I habilitated at the Doctoral School of Management and Organizational Sciences of the Kaposvár University. The title of my habilitation thesis is: “Characteristics of codes of ethics and their integration into practice among large Hungarian companies”.

In 2017 I received an Excellent TDK (Scientific Students' Associations) Mentor Award at the University of Miskolc, and in 2014 the Teaching Excellence Award of the University of Miskolc. I am the author of more than 150 international and Hungarian publications. My main research areas are business ethics, corporate ethics, corporate social responsibility, corporate sustainability and social entrepreneurship.

I have been a member of the European Business Ethics Network Deutschland E.V. since 1997, and of the BBS’ Sustainability Network since 2017. Since 2017, I have been a member of the editorial board of the European Scientific Journal as well as the Journal of Business Ethics and Leadership (BEL).
