News of another conference… although with BAM and EABIS also running on the 11th… could be a slight clash of timings.
Business Ethics ~ Teaching and Practice
Leeds University Business School, Thursday 11 September, 2008.
A one-day conference in Business Ethics hosted by Leeds University Business School, the Inter-Disciplinary Ethics Applied CETL and the Business, Management, Accountancy and Finance HE Academy Subject Centre.
Business Ethics is rapidly expanding, both as an area of study, and as a fundamental concern for business professionals. Graduates of business and related subjects are increasingly interested in the ethical reputations of prospective employers. Employers expect universities to produce graduates who have a sophisticated understanding of business ethics, informed both by rigorous theory and the practical knowledge of how businesses really work.
This national one-day conference will:
· Consider fundamental questions about business ethics in teaching, training and practice.
· Explore effective practice in the design and delivery of ethics teaching to undergraduate and postgraduate students of business.
· Reflect on how business studies curricula may be developed to better equip graduates to address ethical issues.
The conference includes keynote presentations from Peter Day (BBC Radio 4’s Business Correspondent ), Professor Elaine Sternberg (internationally renowned Philosopher and author of Just Business) and Professor Chris Cowton (Dean of the Huddersfield Business School – who is recognised for his contributions to business ethics, especially his writing on socially responsible/ethical investment). There will also be a range of interactive workshops on related themes, including: ethics and leadership, employee relations and the ethics of organisational change, and promoting integrity in organisations.
