About 2015 Partners in Business Ethics Conference:
Corporate leaders consistently emphasize the importance of ethics and integrity in the workplace. Yet, they are concerned that business schools are not graduating students with the depth of understanding nor educational experiences necessary to recognize and address complex ethical situations when they arise. This conference provides one of the only opportunities available for corporate leaders to play a critical role in discussing and refining the business ethics education provided at top schools around the country.
