Beta Alpha Psi team places second in Inamori Ethics competition

A delegation from Weatherhead School of Management’s chapter of Beta Alpha Psi placed second in the inaugural Ethics Dialogue Award contest convened by the Inamori International Center for Ethics and Excellence. Student teams were asked to identify and explore the most serious ethical issues confronting humanity. Teammates Joe Ammon, Yifan Cai, Jeenan El-Khoury, David Miller and Yitao Wang discussed information asymmetry across contexts as diverse as capital markets and the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster.

The group said they entered the contest because they recognized that, as professional accountants, they “have a duty to combat the withholding of information from society at large.”

Beta Alpha Psi is the honorary organization for business information students.
