Ryan Jr. Professor of International Business Ethics at the Mendoza College of Business, University of Notre Dame (Indiana, USA) and Fellow of the Kellogg Institute for International Studies and the Nanovic Institute for European Studies. He is former President of the International Society of Business, Economics, and Ethics (ISBEE; 2001-2004). Before joining the faculty at Notre Dame in 1992, he was doing research and teaching in the field of business ethics in Europe over ten years and was co-founder of the European Business Ethics Network (EBEN). He also conducted a number of seminars on business ethics in companies like Ciba-Geigy and BMW.

Since 1994 he has been involved in numerous research and teaching activities in China, particularly at the China Europe International Business School (CEIBS) in Shanghai (1996-2003) and at the Shanghai Advanced Institute of Finance (SAIF), Jiaotong University (since 2011). His has authored and edited 18 books and over 140 articles (see Publications) and serves on the Board of Advisors of several academic journals and Centers for Business Ethics (see Editorial Positions). He co-chaired the World Congress of Business, Economics, and Ethics 2000 in São Paulo, Brazil, and the subsequent Congress 2004 in Melbourne, Australia (ISBEE).

His research interests lie in understanding the ethical challenges of international business for corporate decision making, how they are to be analyzed in the context of global pluralism and lacking background institutions, how they can be met by ethical guidelines, corporate culture, and promoting background institutions.

More specifically, he conducts research on the ethics of globalization, wealth creation, and corporate responsibilities of large and small companies, with a view on developments in China. In recent papers, he has developed a new, comprehensive concept of wealth creation and applied it to China’s economic development since 1978. He has explicated the ethical implications of the UN Guiding Principles for Business and Human Rights and investigated the potential of the Golden Rule for a globalizing world; Muslim, Christian, and Jewish views on wealth creation; new concepts of long-term investing; and ethical challenges for marketing in China.
