SAN FRANCISCO STATE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF BUSINESS:

ANNUAL BUSINESS ETHICS WEEK
November 5 through 9, 2007

Calendar of Events

Listing of faculty activities in the classroom

This November, the second annual Business Ethics Week at San
Francisco State’s College of Business will create a shared focus among faculty
and students on the importance of business ethics, corporate social
responsibility and sustainable business. During Business Ethics Week II,
faculty members are encouraged to include case studies, readings, speakers,
exercises and discussions relating to these ethical dilemmas in business
practice.

Business Ethics Week II will run from Monday, November 5 through Friday, November 9 at both the main campus and the downtown
campus. There will be two College-wide events at the downtown campus featuring
Jon Hoak, Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer at Hewlett-Packard and Ms. Kim Winston, Manager of Civic and Community
Affairs at Starbucks.

During the first Business Ethics Week in November 2006, over 4,000
business students at SF State's College of Business heard from more than 50
business and industry experts on topics related to business ethics. The College
embraced the topic with approximately 50% of faculty integrating ethics-related
modules or speakers. Campus-wide events included a former CIO of PG&E on the
topic of Corporate Ethics and a faculty panel on the topic of corporations and
the environment.

SF State’s College of Business is one of the few business schools
that require all graduate and undergraduate business students to take a
Business & Society course—and has for the past 25 years. Many of our
faculty members in fields such as finance, accounting, marketing, information
systems, decision sciences, management, international business and hospitality
management, integrate modules on ethics and social responsibility in their
courses. In addition, SF State’s College of Business is the first California
State University to offer an MBA with an Emphasis in Sustainable Business. Click for more information about the Sustainable Business Emphasis.
