Business has an urgent need to express a renewed story about how it interacts with and contributes to society. It also needs a new generation of leaders with the skills necessary to guide their organizations through an environment shaped by complex and often volatile social forces. The Institute for Business in Society (IBiS) was created to address these growing challenges.

Through a four-part effort that incorporates conferences, cases, courses and research, IBiS helps business leaders anticipate and address the crises inevitably produced when business and society diverge. IBiS prepares leaders to positively impact society through business.
