The World Business Ethics Forum (WBEF) was co-founded by Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) and University of Macau (UM) in 2006. The WBEF offers an excellent opportunity for academics and practitioners to meet colleagues from around the world, to share and to discuss ideas and issues related to new thinking and research findings in the broad area of business ethics.

The 6th WBEF will be held from 11-13 December 2016 at Hong Kong Baptist University. The theme for this forum is Making a Difference?

  1. Social impact of business ethics and sustainability
  2. Inequality and business sustainability
