About the Georgetown Institute for the Study of Markets and Ethics
The Georgetown Institute for the Study of Markets and Ethics at the McDonough School of Business draws scholars from all divisions of the university to apply insights from business ethics, law, political science, public policy, and economics to the ethical issues encountered in a market society. The institute conducts research on matters related to the ethics of markets and the ethical challenges individuals encounter when functioning in the market environment; develops academic courses and pedagogical tools to advance the teaching of business ethics; brings ethical considerations to bear on policy decisions regarding the regulation of markets; and educates the broader, non-academic community on ethical issues related to the functioning of markets.
