Meet the current team of business ethics interns! Enthusiastic and accomplished students are first screened for knowledge and interest in ethical decision making and hired for internship workplace opportunities where they can experience such issues in action. These placements are made possible through collaboration between prominent Silicon Valley companies and the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics.
The Business Ethics Internship Program is proud to have these early-career professionals represent the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics and SCU.
