Marina Schmitz serves as Researcher and Lecturer at the Coca-Cola Chair of Sustainable Development at IEDC-Bled School of Management in Bled, Slovenia as well as CSR Expert/Senior Consultant at Polymundo AG in Heilbronn, Germany. She draws on several years of work experience as a Lecturer, Research Associate, and Project Manager at the Center for Advanced Sustainable Management (CASM) at the CBS International Business School in Cologne, Germany as well as the University of Göttingen (Chair of Human Resources Management and Asian Business). Marina is passionate about challenging the status quo of how we understand and teach economy and management-related content to our students. To accomplish this goal and create a more inclusive and sustainable society and business environment, she seeks exchange with fellow educators and practitioners. Her focus is on how to use diverse global sustainability reporting frameworks, such as the GRI and CSRD, as levers to initiate corporate transformation. Additionally, she is currently involved in various international research projects dedicated to innovative higher education pedagogy, involving gamification, theater, and other methods informing arts-based management.
