Project Summary

The project aims to establish the Northeast Asia Business Integrity School (NABIS), an educational project for university students, in order to foster a clean and transparent business environment.


NABIS aims to educate university students by nurturing leadership with integrity. Current business leaders and good practices in business ethics will be identified in order to promote fair market conditions in the Republic of Korea. NABIS trainers from Korean companies and Korean subsidiaries of Western and Northeast Asian companies operating in the Republic of Korea will teach NABIS students by using the NABIS curriculum that includes case studies from their own companies.


NABIS aims to influence behavioral changes by teaching the importance of business integrity in the free market and in trade systems and by building a community based on learning and support for NABIS students, candidate students and NABIS trainers. NABIS activities also include train-the-trainer modules, workshops, scholarship and graduation ceremonies, CEO forums, as well as outreach activities to promote the inclusion of NABIS modules into business schools and universities.
