Welcome to the Center for Ethical Business Cultures


The Center for Ethical Business Cultures (CEBC) at the University of St. Thomas Opus College of Business assists leaders in creating ethical and profitable business cultures.

Serving at the intersection between thought and practice leadership, the center brings together leading academic and business practitioners in the field of business ethics and provides public programs; engages in research; and builds and delivers governance and ethical leadership development programs and services.

Founded in 1978, the Center for Ethical Business Cultures has been affiliated with the University of St. Thomas since 1988. Through this core relationship, the center integrates the practical concerns and challenges of business and the research and educational talents of its academic partner.

The Center for Ethical Business Cultures is an independent 501(c)3 non-profit and is primarily supported by membership dues with additional support from grants, contributions from members and the University of St. Thomas.
