The German University in Cairo (GUC), Egypt, for example, has incorporated GVV in its business ethics course taught at the MBA level. Other universities piloting the GVV approach include Al-Akhawayn University in Ifrane, Morocco, and Qatar University. These efforts are currently being documented in a forthcoming book to be published by Routledge in the GVV Book Series.
