Michael Santoro

Founder, MAS BEHR


Michael Santoro is a Professor of Management and Entrepreneurship at Santa Clara University. With the growing relevance of human rights, Professor Santoro decided to implement an undergraduate level business ethics lab at SCU. He seeks to fully implement human rights into SCU business curriculum through curating a lab that encourages students to prioritize human rights in business decisions. Inviting a select group of his best students, Professor Santoro started MSBEHR in winter of 2020.

With a long history of work in the Business and Human Rights field, Professor Santoro is a founding Co-Editor of the Business and Human Rights Journal and founding President of the Global Business and Human Rights Scholars Association.

Brooke Eldridge

Brooke Eldridge is a sophomore from Kansas City, Missouri studying Marketing alongside Retail Studies and Studio Art at Santa Clara University.  She ultimately strives to work in branding or advertising within the retail space. However, she also recognizes the retail industry’s history with human rights violations and unsustainable practices which she seeks to alleviate throughout her career. 

The Business Ethics and Human Rights space resonates with Brooke because of her strong ambition to explore businesses’ social impact in communities spanning globally. The MAS BEHR has allowed her to funnel her passion for ethics into corporate responsibility. Having an ethics-based business community has inspired her to investigate how human rights concerns interact with her fields of study.

Patrick Burke '22

 

Patrick Burke is a class of 2022 student from Los Altos, California studying finance. Patrick aspires to have a career in venture capital and private equity in Silicon Valley. He wants to assist in making decisions on investments in start-ups and technology companies. He recognizes that it will be important that I am proficient at understanding the ethical ramifications of an investment in order to invest in the right companies.

Patrick knows that the most ethical business decisions are not always the most profitable. However, he thinks that using business ethics within the venture capital field could help firms to start investing in companies that are going to benefit society. He also argues that investors can help new companies create and implement ethical standards that will assist the company with corporate responsibility and ultimately greater success. Patrick appreciates that working with the MAS BEHR lab has also allowed him to evaluate investments through a Jesuit ethical framework that upholds social justice and human rights.
