About Ethical Systems

Ethical Systems is a collaboration of top researchers, most of whom are faculty at leading business schools. We all share the conviction, backed by research, that in the long run, good ethics is good business.
The core team is housed in NYU Stern’s Business and Society Program, although our interns can work remotely. Interns have an opportunity to work with prominent academics and ethics leaders. The internship is open to undergraduate students but we give priority to graduate level candidates.
