Ethics Week 2012: Find Your Moral Compass
October 26, 2012
Time: All Day
"If you don't have integrity, you have nothing. You can't buy it. You can have all the money in the world, but if you are not a moral and ethical person, you really have nothing."
October 22-26, 2012
Seidman College of Business
Ethics? Yes ethics. Seidman College of Business wants ethics – thinking about ethics and ethical behavior – to be at the core of student and faculty activities. Ethics Week provides an opportunity for students to hear from local business leaders who believe in doing business the right way in a time when many students get very mixed messages about what is acceptable behavior both in school and in the workplace. Come see how they have thrived by adherence to their values and how they use their moral compass to guide them when inevitable dilemmas come up.
Ethics Week 2012: Find Your Moral Compass will provide students with an opportunity to learn about Ethics in Business and Academics. It seeks not only to educate, but also to inspire students. Ethics has no simple solution, rather, it is a life long journey. It is our hope that students take away important elements that will help guide them in their own journeys.
