Ethical Leaders in Business Learning Community
The Ethical Leaders in Business Learning Community focuses on the relationship between Business Leadership and the Jesuit Mission of being men and women for others.
Living in the Ethical Leaders in Business Learning Community is an excellent opportunity for first year and second year men and women in the John Cook School of Business or in the Arts & Sciences Economics program to learn from one another, collaborate together, and live in a supportive environment.
This Learning Community offers two First-Year Interest Groups (FIGs) - see description below. Business school students are encouraged to participate in the Business Service Leadership Certificate Program through the School of Business.Examples of Community Experiences and Service Involvement:
Ethical Leaders in Business First-Year Interest Groups (FIGs)
FIG 1 - Business Leadership & Social Responsibility
Combining an introductory course in Business with a core class in Theology, the Business Leadership and Social Responsibility FIG within the Ethical Leaders in Business Learning Community focuses on the relationship between Business Leadership and the Jesuit Mission of being men and women for others. To facilitate this, students will be given opportunities to examine current social issues from both a Business perspective and a Theological perspective. This FIG is restricted to students in the John Cook School of Business and is ideal for incoming business students that wish to learn how to integrate their academic major with service for a greater good. Only John Cook School of Business admitted students can join this FIG.
FIG 2 - Leadership, Eloquence, and Character
Most people think of crunching numbers or buying stock when they think of the Business, but that is just one small part of the Business world. The Leadership, Eloquence, and Character FIG opens the door to another side of Business. You'll learn about presenting yourself through the written word and about ethical practices in business. This FIG is designed to help you gain skills in leadership and to develop eloquence and character as you start your journey into the field of business.Only John Cook School of Business admitted students can join this FIG. There is also a minimum verbal ACT score of 25 or verbal SAT score of 550 that is required for ENGL 190 & PHIL 105.
