World Institute of Scientology Enterprises (WISE) is a Church of Scientology organization which promotes the ideology of Scientology and L. Ron Hubbard to businesses.

WISE's stated goal is "an ethical, sane and prosperous civilization", but its incorporation papers show that it exists "for religious purposes. Its purposes are to promote and foster the religious teachings of L. Ron Hubbard in society".[2][3][4]

When tracing the corporate history of WISE note that there have been a few WISE incorporations, so it's important to be sure which entity is being referred to. (Internally it was all the same WISE organization.)

Scientologist-run businesses are strongly expected to join WISE, with varying levels of membership. The highest member companies in a local area form a Charter Committee which rules on disputes between members, similar to a Committee of Evidence, rather than going to the courts.
