Preparing Students to be Principled Leaders

The University of Miami School of Business Administration takes a leadership role in ethics education through its innovative academic programs, extracurricular activities, community outreach and research agenda. A pillar of the School’s mission is to prepare students to be “principled leaders” who can effectively meet the ethical challenges they will face in the workplace. The School also provides guidance to the business community as it faces a changing and complex legal and compliance environment.
