The forum,“Crisis Mitigation through Ethics: A Business Perspective,” will take place from 12:15 to 4 p.m. in the Donald W. Reynolds Center for Business and Economic Development Room 103.
As part of the Joe T. Ford Trust and Career Catalyst Program, students can engage in discussions during the event aimed at helping to prepare them for the workforce.
“Business ethics is at the core of a business college curriculum,” said Dr. Jane Wayland, Stephen Harrow Smith Dean of Business. “This forum provides both the business community and students an opportunity to engage with individuals who understand ethical dilemmas facing business leaders.”
The keynote speaker, Dr. Thomas Robinson, is president and chief executive officer of the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, the primary global accreditation organization for business schools.
A short talk from Dr. Casey Rockwell, assistant professor of marketing, and Dr. Bobby Lamy, head of practice analysis and curriculum design at the Chartered Financial Analyst Institute, will follow Robinson’s presentation. A panel discussion of case studies will follow the speakers. Panelists include Chris Fleishmann, portfolio manager and research analyst for Foundation Resource Management, Kevin Horn, senior manager at BKD Little Rock, and Robinson.
For the first time, the College of Business will make the forum available online using Blackboard Collaborate. This gives students, as well as professionals who are certified as public accountants and chartered financial analysts, the opportunity to view the forum from external locations while earning credits toward their Continuing Professional Education.
