Global Business Ethics Symposium (GBES)

Announcing a Global Business Ethics Week

June 12-17, 2017
Join scholars and practitioners converging in Boston from throughout the world. Two leading institutions of global business ethics are proud to host an extraordinary sequence of events. Bentley University and Boston University have combined our schedules for maximum impact: a united Global Business Ethics Week.

Bentley University’s Global Business Ethics Symposium and Teaching Workshop – sponsored by the State Street Foundation – will kick off the week on Monday, June 12th. The three-day Teaching Workshop (invitation only) will lead into the Bentley Ethics Symposium, on Thursday, offering a forum for leading academics, civil society practitioners and corporate executives to exchange ideas and challenges on a range of discipline-based ethics issues (e.g., marketing ethics, finance ethics, health care ethics). This is the 13th Symposium in a multi-year partnership held annually in memory of Timothy B. Harbert, Chairman and CEO of State Street Global Advisors and Trustee and Alumnus of Bentley College. The Business Ethics Week events will then move to Boston University for June 15-17, for the Susilo Institute for Ethics in the Global Economy's symposium.

The 2017 Global Business Ethics Symposium will take place on Thursday, June 15th
