The Peter P. Dhillon Centre for Business Ethics was established in 2015 with the aim of creating a leading international voice in the application of ethical perspectives in business.
The Centre provides a focus to UBC Sauder’s diverse approaches to advancing business ethics and values-driven business practices locally, nationally and around the world through:
- Academic programming in ethics and values-based business across the entire school - from undergraduate and graduate curriculum to executive education.
- Outreach and engagement with the business community and public to advance discussion and sharing of best practices related to ethics and values.
- Supporting student initiatives at UBC Sauder connected to sustainability, social enterprise, responsible investing, philanthropy and other values-based activities.
- Coordinating scholarly research that investigates and influences ethical practices across business disciplines.
The Centre’s goal is to transform both the experience of students, our future business leaders, and the current conversation around ethics in the business and policy community.
“A lot of business leaders are really good people and each and everyday they are faced with very complex issues. It is my belief that the centre will provide the tools that these leaders need to make ethical decisions. That's my
belief and where I want to make a meaningful impact."
