Last month, the Center for the Study of Business Ethics, Regulation and Crime (C-BERC) hosted a keynote lecture and conference at the Robert H. Smith School of Business. The center is co-sponsored by the College of Behavior and Social Sciences and the Robert H. Smith School of Business. The C-BERC conference featured a keynote lecture “Putting Integrity into Finance: A Purely Positive Approach” by Michael C. Jensen , Jesse Isidor Straus Professor of Business Administration, Emeritus, at the Harvard School of Business Administration. This lecture was followed by a daylong conference, “Ethics and Corporate Malfeasance: Interdisciplinary Perspectives.”
“The purpose of the keynote and of the conference was to bring together scholars and practitioners from different disciplines and fields to share expertise and offer insights into ethical issues confronting modern business. We hope that the events created interest in C-BERC, emerging connections and networks among participants, and shared ideas for research moving forward,” said C-BERC Director Sally Simpson, a professor in the Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice.
