  •  Business Ethics in Practice

    Thursday, Oct. 8, 2015 2:47 PM

    Three business students are putting their SCU education to use and getting a taste for how ethics are practiced in real-world business. As part of the Business Ethics Internship, sponsored by the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics, Conor, Ashley, and Sarina are interning with Cisco Systems’ ethics and compliance team, each working in a different capacity. We have spoken to them all about their experiences so far and their thoughts on ethics and business.

    Conor Boone 
    Senior, conomics and philosophy double major

    Sarina Jwo 
    Senior, finance major
    “Business and ethics are not black and white. I've learned that ethics is often applied to circumstance, but there's also a need to preserve the company's integrity and commitment to its shareholders. The difficulty is maintaining that balance.”
