Albers Ethics Week

May 7th - 11th, 2018


Albers Ethics Week is a unique program that invites 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.

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 the Center for Business Ethics to highlight the Albers School's 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:
