Business Ethics

Business Ethics refers to the ethics of business activities. Research topics include the ethics of private companies and other forms of business organizations (government, public offices, and NPOs); what a capitalist or competitive society should be; professionalism; and meaningful works. Recent research examines CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) in light of corporate scandals such as window dressing, disguises, and death due to overwork or job-related exhaustion.

Business ethics as an academic area appeared early in the 20th century. However, the philosophy and ethics literatures argued about how to conduct business since the ancient Greek, medieval Christian, and modern commercial times. This history deserves our attention.

We aim to conduct research and participate in education initiatives in business ethics, working with domestic and foreign researchers in business and other areas.
