Ethics Across Questrom

"Business ethics is at the core of the Questrom School.  It is our Mission to 'prepare innovative and ethical leaders who understand the impact of business on society and create value for the world.'"

Last week the second year full-time MBA students experienced a week long Ethics intensive. During this course, they not only learned the fundamentals of ethical decision making, but met with CEO's of local organizations and worked on a Social Change Project that would have a sustainable impact for the community. The biggest take away of the week: You can make a difference in a short period of time if you put you mind to it! 

Some examples of Social Change Projects: 
  • "Practice Mindfulness"- teaching students & faculty to be present 
  • "From Surviving to Thriving" - support refugees who have been victims of trauma or torture to get the resources they need to restart their lives 
  • "Burn Calories, Not Electricity"- campaign to show how making small changes can impact your health and sustainability
