About Us

The Business Ethics Center was established in 1993. The mission of the Center is to promote ideas and techniques of business ethics in higher education, academic research, and business life. The functioning of the Center is based on the conviction that ethics is a relevant aspect at all levels of economic activities, from individual and organizational to societal and global. Complex economic problems require, we believe, multidisciplinary approaches using models from economics, management science, psychology, and ethics.

The activities of the Business Ethics Center is supported by an International Advisory Board. Its members include Professor Edwin M. Epstein (University of California at Berkeley), Professor Stefano Zamagni (University of Bologna), and Professor Henk van Luijk (1930-2010) (Nijenrode University).

The ecological, the communitarian, and the feminist perspectives contribute significantly to our understanding of contemporary economic and social reality. Business ethics is practiced by the Center as a post-modern kind of scientific inquiry where normative and descriptive elements are not separated but intermingled. The Business Ethics Center has an active interest not only in business ethics but also in environmental ethics, information ethics, public service ethics, and international ethics. We try to create a practical synthesis of interdisciplinary ethics focusing on the new reality of economics and business in the 21st century.
