In order to create a more ethical business climate in the region, the BB&T Center for Ethical Leadership believes that educating students early in their careers on the topic of business ethics will help build more ethical future leaders. To do so, the BB&T Center for Ethical Leadership has created the BEE program for high school students.
Business Ethics: Educate (BEE-1)
The BB&T Center for Ethical Leadership has developed the Business Ethics: Educate (BEE-1) high school program in ethics education.
BEE-1 brings over 600 high school students from the north Georgia region each year to the UNG campuses for a half-day program focused on facilitating discussions on ethical behavior, providing an understanding of an ethical decision-making process, and increasing student awareness of the importance of ethical behavior in business.
The BEE-1 program consists of three foundational courses:
- Ethics: Framework, Decision-Making and Self Branding
- Organizational Ethics
- ACTIVITY: Are your ethics for sale?

Business Ethics: Experience (BEE-2)
With BEE-2, the BB&T Center for Ethical Leadership brings over 100 high school students from north Georgia to the Lanier Charter Career Academy for a full-day simulation focused on immersing students in a business environment, developing critical thinking in ethical decision-making through real scenarios, and defending ethical decisions to a live panel of business community leaders.
