Business Ethos with
Retired EMU College of Business Dean David Mielke
Mondays at 8:40 AM
Each Monday at 8:40 AM ET Lucy Ann and Dr. Mielke discuss business ethos as it pertains to current events. Dr. Mielke says, “Making ethics the backbone of teaching makes sense not only because it’s the right thing to do but also because ethics is good for business.”
Ethics education has long been an important component of Eastern Michigan University’s College of Business curriculum. Ethos however, pertains to a culture and environment that not only fosters ethics but is also is based on a strong set of professional and personal values. The students, faculty and staff of the College of Business want to encourage and foster a professional business environment to serve as the foundation for business education.
A gift by the Merlanti family in 2001 provided the impetus to raise awareness of ethics in all we do. The gift was first used to establish the Merlanti Ethics seminar for students . In March 2006, the faculty of the College of Business decided that they wanted to develop a strong statement of the ethics and values that represents the foundation of the college. The resulting Ethos Statement is the first adopted by any business school in the country. It lists six values as the core for the college and is attached to every syllabus for every course offered by the College of Business.

Congress passed and President Trump signed a two year budget bill last week at the eleventh hour. There is no question we needed to pass a budget and to avoid another shutdown. But there are mixed reviews, with one thing for sure, there was little concern about increasing the debt once again.more »
“Breaking Up Is Hard To Do.” You may remember the Neil Sedaka song. President Trump’s frustration with federal judges, particularly on immigration issues, has led him to join calls to break up the Ninth US Circuit Court of Appeals, based in San Francisco. The idea of breaking up the 9th Circuit is not new. Proposals have existed since before World War II. Some advocates of a split argue that the court is just too large and covers too large of a population in the United States.more »
It has been really cold, certainly an understatement. Have you noticed any of the solar panels around town that are snow covered and obviously not generating any power?more »
