2013 International Business Ethics Case Competition (IBECC)

The Center for Ethics and Business at Loyola Marymount University, the Opus College of Business of the University of St. Thomas (MN), and the Ethics & Compliance Officer Association (ECOA) are pleased to announce that the 2013 International Business Ethics Case Competition (IBECC) will be held from May 8-9 in conjunction with the ECOA’s Sponsoring Partner Forum in San Diego, California. IBECC is the oldest and most-recognized business ethics competition of its kind.

Teams of 3-5 students participate in a variety of competitions (20-to-30 minute presentation followed by Q&A; 10-minute presentation; 90-second presentation), all of which are judged by practicing ethics and compliance professionals. Each team selects a topic from any area of business ethics and describes both the problem and a proposed solution. Approximately $12,000 in prize money will be awarded to overall winners, runners-up, and divisional winners.

The 2013 IBECC will be limited to 30 teams. Undergraduate and graduate teams compete in separate divisions. We have a special interest in encouraging international teams.

Students will have the opportunity to learn about organizational ethics by attending ECOA conference sessions and by interacting informally with the world’s leading ethics and compliance officers.

Please note that the deadline for the Team Registration and Admission Application is Jan. 1, 2013. Please contact Kirsten Nordblom (Knordblom@lmu.edu or 310.338.2321) or Thomas White (twhite@lmu.edu or 310.338.4523) to reserve a spot in the event as soon as possible.

Further information about IBECC will be posted at http://ethicsandbusiness.lmu.edu as it becomes available.

  1. Nice idea. One question: do you plan to include doctoral and postdoctoral students in this competition or is it only for graduate students?
    Best regards from University of Belgrade, Serbia.
