Chair of Business Ethics

"The ethical dimension of business includes respecting persons, fostering human development and working not only towards economic results, but also personal excellence".

The mission of the Chair of Business Ethics is to foster business ethics, trying to overcome the longstanding separation between ethics and economic and business activities. To this end, it seeks to develop theoretical concepts, theories and practical proposals to effectively integrate ethics into managerial activity and business organizations.

Through a few areas of research, the Chair currently develops the folowing projects:

  • Ethics in decision making
  • Business in comunity development
  • Virtues in business
  • Logic of gift in business
  • Ethical foundations of management

The Chair forms part of IESE’s educational and research activity. It collaborates with the Department of Business Ethics, as well as the Center for Business in Society and “La Caixa” Chair of Corporate Social Responsibility and Corporate Governance at IESE Business School.
