The Buffalo Niagara Business Ethics Association and Niagara University have announced a new strategic educational partnership.
BNBEA annually recognizes Western New York companies exemplifying the highest standards of ethical behavior and practice with its prestigious BNBEA Crystal Award. As one of the initiatives of this partnership, Niagara University’s College of Business Administration students will assist BNBEA in evaluating the annual business ethics awards applications within three distinct categories. The finalists identified from each group will then be submitted to a judging panel of local professionals for review and Crystal Award selection.
“This educational collaboration with Niagara University is consistent with our mission as we expand community awareness of business ethics through innovative educational opportunities with students and businesses,” says Fred Holender, BNBEA board president.
“This partnership is very exciting for both our organizations,” said Dr. Mark Frascatore, dean of Niagara University’s College of Business Administration. “It combines cooperative work amongst student and faculty with engaging environments to meet the needs of business school graduates. And it reinforces our ethics-based business education and supports our leadership as the upcoming host of the 2020 International Vincentian Business Ethics Conference.”
BNBEA’s mission is to foster, promote and recognize ethical business practices in the Buffalo Niagara Region. To learn more, visit www.buffalobusinessethics.org.
