Students Win International Business Ethics Competition

Marywood University undergraduate students recently placed first and second in two categories at the International Business Ethics Case Competition (IBECC) in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

The students who competed are Ellen Clauss, Meryl Fioriti, Joseph Duda, and Michael Plate. The students are prepared each year under the advisement of faculty members Sarah Kenehan, Ph.D., assistant professor of philosophy, and Murray Pyle, Ph.D., assistant professor in the School of Business and Global Innovation.

Marywood students competed with teams from around the world, including Turkey, Spain, the United Kingdom, China, Canada, and Australia, to name a few.

Dr. Pyle said, “Each year there are more schools and a higher caliber of students who compete with each other. It is a pleasure to work with such talented students and to be a part of and a witness to their academic excellence.”

The IBECC is the premier international competition of its kind. The event is sponsored jointly by the Center for Ethics and Business at Loyola Marymount University, the Opus College of Business of the University of St. Thomas, Minn., the Center for Business Ethics at Bentley University, and the Ethics & Compliance Initiative.
