Following an extended collaboration between the Institute and the South Bend, IN PBS affiliate WNIT, we are pleased to announce that the television program Big Questions will be airing in the Michiana region beginning April 8. The show combines documentaries focusing on topics ranging from microlending in Bangladesh to recidivism in a Michigan women's jail with engaging in-studio discussion that draws upon the expertise of several DePaul professors, including the Institute's Patricia Werhane.

DePaul University is pleased to host the ...
20th Annual International Vincentian Business Ethics Conference
October 17-19, 2013 - Chicago, IL
The conference will address topics in all areas of business and professional ethics. A combination of formats will be used to address critical ethical issues.
“Business Ethics in the 21st Century: The Globalization of Corporate Responsibilities"
This year we particularly encourage panels, presentations, or case studies that focus on global issues related to the following questions: What models should companies and managers develop for corporate governance in an increasingly global economy? How can companies market to the vast majority of the world that is in abject poverty? Can they address the issues of poverty and disease in less developed countries while continuing to be fiscally responsible? What is the role of entrepreneurs in these new markets?
Today’s corporate leaders will address current ethical challenges in management decision-making.
Academic scholars teamed with men and women in business discuss timely, cutting edge problems and solutions concerning ethics and ethical decision making in business.
Innovative research and scholarship on all areas of business and professional ethics are presented through formal, academic papers
