Business Ethics and Other Oxymorons

Two of the foremost minds on business, Nitin Nohria, Dean of Harvard Business School, and Thomas J. Peters, author of “In Search of Excellence: Lessons from America’s Best-Run Companies,” discuss teaching ethics to business students. Nohria and Peters share their wisdom on morally committing to your business, the misnomer of “corporate responsibility,” and teachable behavior versus intrinsic personal character. With guidance from moderator Donna Carpenter, CEO of New Word City, their conversation will span from partnering with others who aren’t ethical to serving the stakeholders. Between purpose and pay-offs, where are our principles in business today?

Thomas J. Peters will be signing and selling copies of his book, “In Search of Excellence: Lessons from America’s Best-Run Companies” at the end of the event.

Thursday, November 1, 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
C. Walsh Theatre, Suffolk University
