Award for Northumbria Banking Ethics research

16th June 2021

Research by a team including Northumbria University’s Professor Ron Beadle has been recognised by a jury of senior banking professionals and academics in Spain. 

Alongside Dr Marta Rocchi from Dublin City University, and Professor Ignacio Ferrero from the University of Navarra, he was awarded third place in an annual international competition for publications in business ethics during 2020.

Professor Beadle said: “we argued that banking need not be unethical, so long as bankers remain true to virtues including justice, prudence and loyalty. The scandals of recent years have involved them losing sight of this.  It is pleasing that the jury recognised the merits of this argument.”

Northumbria University is a leader in ethical and responsible business research and has been ranked in  the top 50 universities for business ethics worldwide.  Its Responsible Business signature research area brings together more than 70 scholars and a range of international collaborations.

The award was sponsored by the Madid-based Industrial Bank, Bankiter and the Comillas Pontifical University.
