CTTMA Forum to Feature Fairfield Profs

Two Fairfield University business school professors will speak about business ethics at a Connecticut Turnaround Management Association (CTTMA) event at the Graduate Club in New Haven on March 16.

The event, “Business Ethics: Do you know right from wrong?” will focus on current ethics issues drawn directly from the boardroom.

The two professors are Dr. Donald Gibson, dean and professor of management at the Dolan School of Business at Fairfield University, and Dr. David Schmidt, an associate professor of business ethics at the Dolan School of Business.

Dr. Gibson’s research examines organizational role models, emotions in management, anger in the workplace, and conflict management. Dr. Schmidt is director of the Dolan school’s ethics program. His course titles include: Engineering Ethics; Business Ethics; Ethics of War and Peace; and Ethics & Communications.

“Our event, part of CTTMA’s Expert Series, is designed to help attendees learn how to evaluate and manage complex ethics issues facing their businesses and their clients’ businesses through an interactive program and presentation,” says Joshua Cohen, CTTMA vice president of programs and a partner in the law firm Day Pitney LLP.
