Albers Ethics Week

May 7th - 11th, 2018

Albers Ethics Week brings guest speakers to undergraduate and graduate courses throughout the Albers curriculum. The goals are to increase student awareness of ethical issues in the workplace and to help them think critically about ethics problems in business. 

This coming spring marks a decade since the financial crisis of 2008. The public events associated with Albers Ethics Week will therefore be centered on the theme Ethics and Finance: A Decade After Crisis. This theme will also allow us to highlight Albers' recent accomplishments in the area of finance, including its recent designation as Program Partner with the CFA Institute.

The tentative details of these events are:
