2018: Ethics in Finance

Ethics and Finance: A Decade After Crisis

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 week-long, intensive study 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. 

In addition to these classroom visits, the Center will host two public events centered on the theme Ethics and Finance: A Decade After Crisis. We will look at the implications of the 2008 financial crisis a decade after its impact and highlight the Albers School's recent success in the area of finance.
