The Koch Center for Leadership and Ethics

Humanizing business education by introducing students and the public to principled entrepreneurship

The Koch Center for Leadership and Ethics humanizes business education by introducing students and the public to principled entrepreneurship and the moral free enterprise system necessary to support it. The Center focuses on the inherently social nature of business and teaches people that business is about relationships, not transactions.

Support

Our mission is to humanize business education and transform the lives of our students by helping them understand the role ethics, freedom, and mutual respect play in furthering human flourishing. As a student engagement center, our funding goes directly into impacting the lives of our future generation of leaders and helping them preserve freedom with dignity and making the world a better place for generations to come.

If you are interested in being transformative in the lives of our future leaders and if our programs resonate with what you care about, we would love to have your support and we want you to join us in making the world a better place.
