Fostering awareness, discussion and debate about ethical practices in business.
Businesses can be a force of great good and harm. Now, with the rise of the global economy, companies' role in greater society is questioned. Should businesses seek to maximize profit or take the lead in solving the world's environmental and societal problems?

Wilson Chair of Business Ethics makes UNI Business one of Iowa's prominent authorities in business ethics.
