Week 8 Announcements

Last meeting for the fall term —

Beta Alpha Psi (BAP) — Wed, Nov. 20th, Bexell 328 (Moss Adams Classroom) 6-7pm — SEE FLYER

Moss Adams — “Corporate Social Responsibility”

The final presentation for the term will be on corporate social responsibility. Christian Geisman, a Senior Manager from the Seattle Moss Adams office will be joining us.

Corporate Social Responsibility involves businesses active compliance with the spirit of the law, ethical standards, and international norms. Often it includes going beyond compliance and engaging in actions that further some social good beyond the interest of the firm. This aspect of a business can have many business benefits while bettering society at the same time.
