Business & Development Innovation
Djordjija Petkoski, Lecturer in the Legal Studies & Business Ethics Department and Senior Fellow of the Zicklin Center for Business Ethics Research, is the faculty member responsible for leading the Business Development & Innovation Pillar in the Carol and Lawrence Zicklin Center for Business Ethics Research. The Zicklin Center supports Wharton faculty, graduate students and other scholarly partners undertaking research projects that focus on the new role business can play in development innovation, and multi-disciplinary and multi-stakeholder approaches to that new role. Issues are examined through the lenses of business ethics, transparency, accountability, and corporate responsibility. The Center also organizes action-oriented knowledge, as well as colloquia, lectures, seminars and other speaker events. With this group, we support the design and implementation of specific innovative Business and Development Innovation pilot projects with high-scalability potential, and the delivery of capacity-development programs.
Ideas for Action provides students and young professionals from around the world with a unique opportunity to help shape the international development agenda and to take an active role in changing the world.
A joint program of the World Bank Group and the Zicklin Center for Business Ethics Research at the Wharton School, Ideas for Action is a knowledge platform connecting young leaders all around the world who are passionate about the future development of our world.
We host an annual competition during which youths from around the world design ideas for financing the UN’s new development agenda. The competition acts as a catalyst to spark global conversation among millennials and seeks to encourage them to contribute their own voice to the development conversation.
We want you to join this conversation. We want you to change the world.
