I don't think I could analyze Buddhist thought as a whole, but it seems to include an underlying model of human motivation akin to those of Epicureanism and utilitarianism, where value = relief of privation, want, or suffering. Epicureanism might be a form of virtue ethics, but I'm pretty sure utilitarianism is not.
