Albers Ethics Week

Albers Ethics Week is a unique annual program that hosts dozens of guest speakers from the greater Seattle-area business community for an intensive, week-long examination of ethical issues in business. Guests appear in classrooms across the Albers School curriculum, addressing ethical issues in areas such as accounting, finance, data analytics, marketing and human resource management.

Albers Ethics Week takes place this year during May 13-17, 2019 and will also feature two keynote events addressing The Rise of Artificial Intelligence. Join the Center for Business Ethics and Seattle University for these important conversations.
