Message from the Director
The thinking on ethics in business schools has evolved rapidly in the past decade.
No longer just focusing on the lessons of ‘not to do bad,’ ethics has migrated to the role of leadership and governance for the promotion of ‘doing good,’ be it environmentalism, fairness in governance or social responsibility.
Rapid advances in research show that people are not isolated but are hardwired to be engaged, and that shared social values create economic value. In a time of challenges to the viability of the public firm, competitive sustainability is renewed through a modern and ethical conception of corporate behavior.
