On Friday September 21, 2012, Marianne Jennings spoke to the MBA students regarding ethics in business.

Ms. Jennings is an emeritus professor of legal and ethical studies and taught at the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University for 35 years.

During her third visit to NAU, the Lecture of Ethics that Marianne presented was a raging success. Students were very interested in what she had to say and were able to take home valuable advice.

Rico Garcia, MBA student, attended the lecture and stated that his major take-away was the "Bubble Gum Scenario." Employers have asked individuals interested in a job position during an interview if they would accept a free pack of gum. Those that said no did not get the job. The reasoning being if individuals cannot accept the small things (the gum) then how are they expected to perform the big things?

Ethical decisions and case studies similar to the "Bubble Gum Scenario" were presented throughout the lecture and provided students with an excellent idea of how to conduct themselves well within a business atmosphere.
