FASPE for Business Students is currently in development.

In the meantime, here are some recent stories that have spurred us to create a MBA component:

According to a survey of 250 industry insiders from dozens of financial companies, 38% of respondents with under 10 years of experience "said they would commit insider trading for $10 million if they wouldn’t be caught." New York Times, July 16, 2013

Edith O’Brien, the assistant treasurer of MF Global in Chicago, was known as an expert on protecting customer funds and had spoken on the subject at conferences.  Yet when John Corzine, the CEO of MF Global, called her on October 28, 2011 and said the firm needed funds to cover overdrawn accounts at JP Morgan Chase, she tapped into customer assets. "Ms. O’Brien’s biography qualifies her as a middle-management Everywoman... Thrust into a crisis not of her own making, why would she have done something she knew, or should have known, was wrong?"  New York Times, July 5, 2015
