The Pedro Arrupe, S.J., Center for Business Ethics

The Pedro Arrupe, S.J., Center for Business Ethics was founded in 2005 as an intellectual resource for business ethics. The mission of the Arrupe Center is to assure that students are equipped to engage in careful, sustained and critical reflection on ethical issues and are prepared to use that reflection in their business decision-making.

Strategic Goals

  • To support faculty research and curricular development in order to integrate ethics into the student-learning experience
  • To sponsor public lectures and classroom executive speakers
  • To provide opportunities for student activities and to recognize student achievement in business ethics
  • To advocate for integration of ethics into the Haub School business curriculum

Two-thirds of Haub faculty have participated in the Arrupe Center Fellows Program. They have produced 70 articles and 45 courses incorporating ethics.
