The American business landscape faces dramatic changes caused by corporate scandals that call into question the ethics of many high-profile leaders. Why did this happen, and why now?

Bruce Oliver, professor of accounting at Rochester Institute of Technology, examines potential causes of this crisis during his presentation, "Hurricane Ethics: The Storm." Itís the latest installment of the Alumni Breakfast Briefing series, sponsored by RITís College of Business.

The discussion, from 7:30 to 9 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 12, takes place at Oak Hill Country Club in Pittsford and is open to the public.

Oliver is director of the Center for Business Ethics at RITís College of Business. He has published a variety of journals, including The Journal of Business Ethics and The Journal of Accounting Research, and he is frequently quoted in the media on related topics. During his presentation, Oliver will explore what business schools and the business community can do to prevent future turmoil.
