Ethical Discussions boost Business' ReputationFebruary 24, 2014
Southern Utah University’s School of Business will open a new speaker series, open to the public, to be added to an already impressive lineup of business men and women who come to campus to expand students' aspirations. The inaugural Ethics Speaker Series is brought to SUU by a private donor who has shown support for the School of Business for years, with hopes to address the nationwide need for increased ethics training for college students.
“No matter your field of study, knowing how to act ethically and with integrity is a necessity that will make or break a career,” said School of Business Dean Carl Templin.
According to Templin, the School of Business places an emphasis on ethics from day one, and its graduates already have a reputation for their high understanding and application of proper business ethics.
SUU business students engage in discussions and training concerning how to respond ethically to myriad situations throughout all coursework, and are tested on their understanding of business ethics at the beginning of their studies and again when they graduate. Templin looks forward to enhancing that focus with prestigious trainings by the top business people in corporate ethics.
Barney Rosenberg will open the new ethics series on Tuesday, February 25, with “Director for a Day: Life in the Corporate Fast Lane,” an interactive workshop that will cover inspiring and practical ethics practices in businesses across the globe.
As with all presentations within the ethics series, Rosenberg's is open to the public and free of charge.
Rosenberg brings with him a rich background in corporate ethics, with 30 years of innovation and excellence in international business law, to the field of business ethics. He is currently vice president of ethics and business conduct for the Meggitt Group, a global engineering institute specializing in extreme environment components with headquarters in the United Kingdom. Rosenberg has served as general counsel of Mattell and deputy general counsel of Pitney Bows. He received his law degree from the University of Michigan.
Rosenberg’s presentation will begin at 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, February 25, in the Charles Hunter Room within the Hunter Conference Center. All students, as well as local community members and business people, are invited to attend, no matter their field of study.
