The Center for Business Ethics at University of St. Thomas works with the corporate community to help business people and students make good choices that will benefit themselves, their businesses, and their community. The Center offers corporate governance training programs, conferences on business ethics, public lectures, an ethics essay contest for UST MBA students, and the Online Journal of Ethics. By becoming a member of CBES, you can support these activities and insure that you receive early notification of upcoming events.
Describing itself as “business-friendly”, the Center believes that companies and managers have an ethical duty to protect stakeholders, including shareholders and their property rights. It recognises the important role business institutions play in developing and directorytaining a democratic system. CBES also explores the effects of individual and corporate actions and of developing technology upon others, including the more marginal members of the community.
