Past Dale P. Jones Business Ethics Forum Themes
2016 - Just Business
The theme for the 2016 Dale P. Jones Business Ethics Forum was "Just Business." Spanning the first two weeks of November, the forum included many guest speaker presentations from business leaders and wellness professionals. The first week of the forum concluded with the 11th annual Hankamer Ethics Case Competition involving twenty undergraduate teams and ten graduate teams from within the business school. This competition is an experiential and interactive way to help Hankamer School of Business Students understand the importance of ethics. During the second week of the Dale P. Jones Business Ethics Forum, students from twelve schools around the nation competed in our 10th Annual National Case Competition in Ethical Leadership and were given the opportunity to present their ethics recommendations before a panel of business and faculty judges.
