Jesuit Higher Education for Business
Rating

The complexity of modern business requires a climate where virtue flourishes as opposed to venality, careerism and greed. Through theological and religious studies and opportunities for spiritual development, Jesuit business education helps its graduates (regardless of their religious or non-religious tradition) develop an ethical and spiritual inner compass. It directs them toward cooperation with all persons of good will committed to (trans)forming business in a manner consistent with human purpose and dignity. At the same time, the Jesuit trained leader is forewarned of the reality of human imperfections and social distortions evident in business history. The Jesuit perspective shares with the student a commitment to progress in hope. It rejects any utopian model of human or institutional perfection through an understanding that business institutions and economies are created by human beings and must be changed by human beings. As part of their understanding of calling graduates are prepared for self-sacrifice in order to help secure justice for all in every sphere that business touches.

Hanson, executive director of the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics, addressed at a recent meeting of the Business and Organizational Ethics Partnership. Hanson built his talk on a model he devised in 1984 and has revised over the years. “We have a lot of things to draw on that we didn’t back in 1984,” he said. There has been a lot of discussion in recent years about what the signs are that a company is taking ethics seriously.
