Having identified a mutual emphasis on the critical role of personal integrity in today’s business world, Deloitte and the University of Notre Dame have partnered to create a center for the research, teaching, and practice of ethical leadership. Housed within the Mendoza College of Business, the NDDCEL seeks to further an understanding of the topic and explore ways in which ideas generated can be disseminated and implemented in the corporate world.
The specific focus: personal character and integrity—how it can be instilled, measured, and leveraged.
The ultimate goal: to have a significant, positive impact on how business is done.
The three-pronged approach: conduct and sponsor original research, work with corporations to apply new knowledge in practical ways, and bolster curricula at all levels (undergraduate, graduate and executive).
