On Saturday, November 12, 2022, SEB LU organised and hosted the semi-finals of the international competition European Ethics Bowl. This year’s semi-final was EEB’s first live event since its launch in 2020, and featured nine teams from eight European universities, as well as one team from the Alumni Programme of European Investment Bank Institute’s Summer School. The 27 students who made up these nine teams competed for three spots in the final round.

The students debated in two rounds and presented their views on assigned ethical topics related to this year’s overall theme, “Standardising the Business World.” After brief presentations, they debated with opposing teams, followed by questions from a panel of judges and assessment. During the competition, students had the opportunity to learn and practise the skills they need as European citizens and as global citizens. The ethical issues were presented to the students in the form of specific case studies. The case studies were titled “Are gender quotas really enabling gender equality?” and “Standardization of non-financial reporting”.

Teams from ISCTE Business School (Lisbon, Portugal), Université Paris Dauphine (Paris, France) and Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski” (Sofia, Bulgaria) qualified for the final round. The final round will take place on December 9, 2022 and will be hosted by the European Investment Bank Institute in Luxembourg.

The EEB is a pan-European competition on ethical dilemmas initiated by three leading European universities (School of Economics and Business, University of Ljubljana, Goethe University Frankfurt, University Paris Dauphine) and the Alumni Programme of European Investment Bank Institute’s Summer School.
