The Society for Business Ethics (SBE) is a non-profit organization established in 1980 to promote the advancement and understanding of ethics in business. Its mission is to provide a forum in which moral, legal, empirical, and philosophical issues of business ethics may be openly discussed and analyzed. Members include scholars and professionals from several countries with a common interest in research, teaching, or the application of ethical principles to business management. The Society sponsors a scholarly journal, Business Ethics Quarterly, publishes a newsletter, and hosts an annual conference. Members receive online access to the journal, the newsletter, and a number of scholarly books and conference proceedings as benefits of membership.
