MBA Ethics Integration Specialist: Nominations Open

Leverage the Daniels Fund grant in your state

Our work to integrate ethical decision-making into business administration curricula continues to gain momentum.  The Ethical Leadership Course and a significant number of LAPs are now available.  All of these grant-funded materials are available free to qualified teachers.

To help support this initiative, we’re developing state-based MBA Ethics Integration Specialists across the nation.  These practitioners from your state will be certified to offer training in your state to introduce the new, free materials and to help other teachers understand how they can best be used within the framework of your state’s policies and priorities. 

If you do not currently have an Ethics Specialist in your state we invite you to nominate one current business/marketing teacher to assume the MBA Ethics Integration Specialist in your state.  (Priority will be given to members of our current MBA Teacher Advisory Network, but we anticipate additional openings in most states.)  

Training and expectations:

  • Required certification training will be offered January 25 (8:00 – 4:00 p.m.) through January 26 (8:00 – 11:00) in Columbus. Additional training and support activities will be required via monthly conference calls through October.
  • Nominees are required to work with you in advance of acceptance to develop preliminary plans for  certification training, including not fewer than five specific, substantive training/presentation activities during the summer of 2018 and the 18-19 school year.
  • Optional MBA Leadership Forum:  Ethics Integration Specialists will be invited to and encouraged to fully participate in the Forum.
