Event description

Description

Ethics in Action is a student-led initiative that exemplifies the importance we place on values-led management at Dalhousie University’s Faculty of Management. Our goal is to equip tomorrow’s leaders with the tools to make complex decisions while adhering to ethical principles. Ethics in Action is made possible through the generous support of Scotiabank. The case competition is organized by students at the Rowe School of Business.

Ethics in Action has two components: a case competition for undergraduate and graduate business students and the presentation of the Scotiabank Ethical Leadership Award to a Canadian business leader.

Scotiabank Ethics in Action Case Competition

The Dalhousie Ethics in Action case competition is based on written case studies and has two distinct streams: one for undergraduate students and one for graduate students. All teams will be given the opportunity to present both a prepared and a live case. Teams will be made up of four students.

Prepared cases are released 10 days prior to the competition.

Unprepared cases start on Saturday morning at 8:00 am. Each team is given a three-hour isolation period to respond to a fictional ethical dilemma. Undergraduate teams enter into isolation in twenty-minute intervals and are given twelve minutes to present, followed by a three-minute question period. Graduate teams enter into isolation in thirty-minute intervals and are given fifteen minutes to present, followed by a five-minute question period.

Case presentations on Friday run from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm for undergraduate teams, and 9:30 am to 12:00 pm for graduate teams.  Case presentations on Saturday are from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm for undergraduate teams, and 12:30 to 3:00 pm for graduate teams.

**Please note: Registration in the case competition is limited to one team per program per stream (example: a school may enter a BBA team, a BComm team and an MBA team). Teams will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.**
