Academy: Scholarly Works

Where do business theory and theological commitment meet business practice? What happens when the demands of the marketplace conflict with faithful service? The Center for Integrity in Business is home to an array of scholarship inspired by Another Way of Doing Business, the unique business-as-service philosophy championed at SPU’s School of Business, Government, and Economics. Through ongoing scholarly research, CIB staff, associates, and friends are bringing a fresh focus on the integration of faith and integrity in the world of business.
