Title of the study project:

“How moral stances of Baha’i Faith translate in business”

Project aims/objectives:

It is aimed at exploring possibilities of an ethical framework for financial decision making with reference to Baha’i Faith.

Human being has been regarded as driven only by self-interest. Hence, his decisions would ultimately formulate a win-lose scenario. But if his spiritual existence is respected and educated, then he is capable of making choices for benefit of him and his society at the same time, with a deep intention of serving his fellowmen.

Introduction of the science of the Love of God, ready willingness to share, and the culture of sacrifice to financial end economic era would contribute to development of a trustworthy economy.
