We’ve just hit a big milestone for the minor in Business, Ethics & Society (BES), and unlike much else that’s going on in the world, it’s good news! So I’m interrupting your summer to tell you about it.
As you probably know, BES isn’t a traditional business minor. While it certainly includes plenty of practical components, it’s about much more than learning how to “do business” or how to get a job in business. BES is about what it means to do business, and what it might look like to do it well — for each of us individuals, and for all of us together. To be able to develop your own ideas about that, you have to know things about business, and about society, and about doing well. What does it look like, and what does it take, for each of us and all of us to “do well”? To flourish? And what can business contribute? It’s a demanding course of study and a selective process, but I am delighted to announce that we have just admitted our first students.
I am proud to introduce our first cohort, from the Class of 2022! Read on to see a list of names and projects. Continue reading “Business, Ethics & Society Minor Announces First Class of Students”

The Women in Business student committee recently made a video that we want to share with you. The Diversity Student Liaison for the Ciocca Center, Nalani Ramos Ruiz ’21, initiated the response video and the committee was there to support her and the greater call. We are struck by their words and proud to share with you. May we all find ways to be better humans as we strive to connect with what it means to be men and women for and with others.
