About the BB&T Center for Ethical Leadership
The BB&T Center for Ethical Leadership was founded by BB&T and the Mike Cottrell College of Business in 2012. The relationship between these two organizations was a natural fit through similar core values and the importance of ethical business leadership development in both organizations.
The center serves three distinct north Georgia demographic markets: K-12 students, the university community of faculty, staff and students, and the business community at large. Programs have been developed at each level to serve the needs of the region. In each of these markets, the BB&T Center for Ethical Leadership is working to create value by developing ethical business leaders and become a catalyst for ethical thought, analysis and engagement. Ideally, by educating today's business leaders and students - tomorrow's business leaders - the BB&T Center for Ethical Leadership can create a deeper understanding in the communities it serves of how ethical leadership applies to the individual as well as the organizations, communities, and regional, national and international communities that each individual belongs to.
