Bentley University and State Street Corporation Partnership

A Partnership in Global Business Ethics

Established in Memory of Timothy B. Harbert ’76, Chairman and CEO of State Street Global Advisors and Trustee and Alumnus of Bentley University, the partnership unites business and higher education to build a strong ethical foundation from which to serve our many constituencies and communities.

The Bentley Global Business Ethics Symposium sponsored by the State Street Foundation brings together international experts, corporate leaders, academics and media for in-depth discussions of best practices and challenges in business ethics and ethics education. Our goal is to both learn and inform by:

  • Exploring current practices in other institutions, countries and cultures
  • Identifying ways to enhance issues of ethics and corporate responsibility in business education and in outreach to the corporate community
  • Disseminating this experience throughout the academic and practitioner worlds

State Street Corporation is the world's leading provider of services to institutional investors. With offices in 25 countries and customers in more than 100 markets, we understand the importance of being a socially responsible community leader and ethical business partner. We are proud to collaborate with Bentley University in this important endeavor.

Bentley University is a leader in business education located minutes from Boston in Waltham, Massachusetts. Centered on education and research in business and related professions, the Bentley curriculum blends business with technology, liberal arts and a global perspective. Our commitment to ethics education has been a cornerstone of the school's curriculum and campus culture since 1976. We are honored to partner with State Street Corporation to further this mission.
