Be a leader in business ethics

Join student teams from around the world to take on hot-button issues and present your recommendations to a panel of professionals from business, government, and nonprofit sectors.

Should the iPhone data of a terrorist be made available to federal investigators? Is a "hack back" the appropriate response to an online security breach? Does facial recognition technology violate citizens’ constitutional rights?

In your future career, you may find yourself faced with tough questions like these. The Eller Ethics Case Competition is your chance to analyze and explore such issues as an undergraduate, and gain crucial experience in the field of business ethics.

Hosted by the Center for Leadership Ethics at the University of Arizona’s Eller College of Management, this competition is designed to help students understand the importance of corporate social responsibility.

In 2019, Iowa students Hira Mustafa and Abby Haynes took first prize in the competition. Read all about their winning analysis.
