About the Botwinick Prize
Each year, under the auspices of The Sanford C. Bernstein & Co. Center for Leadership and Ethics, The Botwinick Prize in Business Ethics and Ethical Practice in the Professions is awarded to an individual or representative of a business organization exemplifying the highest standard of professional and ethical conduct, as well as ethical decision making in any of the professions, including, but not limited to, accounting, advertising, architecture, health care, journalism, law, public service and social service. The Botwinick Prize in Business Ethics and Ethical Practice in the Professions was established by a generous endowment from the late Benjamin Botwinick, BS ’26 and his wife Bessie.
In addition to the Botwinick Prize in Business Ethics, a select group of Columbia Business School students receive the prestiguous annual Benjamin Botwinick scholarship. Both the Botwinick Prize in Business Ethics and the scholarships help reinforce Columbia Business School’s commitment to leadership and ethics through core courses, extracurricular programming, and research.
