Regina Moczadlo is Professor of Economics at Pforzheim University, with a focus on international economic relations. She studied economics at the University of Heidelberg and earned a doctoral degree at the University of Tubingen. From 1994 to 2000 she led the Master’s program in Industrial Engineering / Export, and from 1998 to 2007 she led the MBA program in International Management.
Her research focuses on various aspects of international direct investments. Part of her work she carries out at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, and at the Indian Institute of Foreign Trade, New Delhi.

Regina Moczadlo deals with different determinants of foreign direct investments. The offshoring in the IT sector at the beginning of the new millennium brought a new dimension to the internationalization of the value chain. While previously, companies mostly outsourced low-skilled jobs, the main focus shifted toward internationalization of skilled work. The corporate goals changed over time. At the end of the 1990s, attention focused on skilled workers, later, the aspect of cost-saving came to the fore. Regina Moczadlo carried out various quantitative and qualitative empirical analyses on the success and risk factors of offshoring and presented the results to entrepreneurial decision-makers on practice-oriented conferences. The findings were included into the offshoring guidelines of BITKOM (Association for Information Technology, Telecommunications and New Media). In addition, Regina Moczadlo carries out country and site analysis for offshoring.
German companies operating in emerging countries with weak systems of governance must develop strategies for dealing with human rights violations, corruption and deficient social standards. Otherwise, they will be held accountable for their behavior by stakeholder groups, and conflicts with stakeholders can damage corporate image and erode the trust of clients and employees, and ultimately hurt the company. NGOs and media do not only observe the behavior of companies; they observe that of suppliers as well. This is why it is crucial that companies also take into account social impact when choosing and managing their suppliers.
