Dr. Huang’s Drive

“Historically, financial investment and helping the poor have been considered two separate functions: You make money through financial investing, and help the poor by giving away money. Impact investing merges the two in a very powerful way, so that an investor’s value system and business knowledge align toward a shared goal of creating wealth while also achieving social and environmental objectives. This is a transformational approach to affecting world poverty, and one that fits perfectly with Mendoza’s mission.”

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 and corporate social responsibility education  provided at top schools around the country.
