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:
Combining an introductory course in Business with a core class in Theology, this FIG 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.
In addition, students may engage in individual service and/or group projects. Service opportunities include, but are not limited to, working with children at Herbert Hoover Boys and Girls Club, tutoring through an after school program at Third Baptist Church, and helping people who are new to American culture at the International Institute of Metropolitan St. Louis. (FIG Enrollment limited to Business School freshmen.)
Leadership, Eloquence, & Character - FIG #F022
Combining an introductory course in business (BIZ 100) with two required Arts and Sciences core courses, PHIL 105 and ENGL 190, this FIG focuses on the connection between eloquence of expression and clarity of thought in order to take up questions about the traits required to become an excellent business leader and to live an excellent human life. The FIG courses will be taught in the model of the Eloquentia Perfecta - the Jesuit model for teaching and learning. Fieldtrips will be included in the FIG activities
