Clinical Professor of Business Ethics

BSPA Lawrence Zicklin Faculty PhotoLarry Zicklin is a Clinical Professor of Business Ethics at Stern and teaches in both the MBA and Trium programs. He is also a senior lecturer in Legal Studies and Business Ethics at the Wharton School of Business and a member of the Duke Corporate Research Learning Network. 

Larry spent 24 years as Managing Partner at Neuberger Berman before he retired in 1999. He then became Non-Executive Chairman where he remained until 2003. During the latter part of that career, he began teaching as an adjunct in the fledgling ethics program at Stern after his own experiences convinced him that young people in business were not being sufficiently sensitized to the ethical and legal risks in business. Current headlines would indicate that those risks continue.

Larry Zicklin's teaching reflects the belief that good ethics are good business in the long run and he teaches his classes with the idea of helping students prosper in their careers while avoiding the mistakes that are so frequently in the headlines.

Outside his academic life, Professor Zicklin is Chairman of the Audit Committee of Neuberger Berman, He is also a past President and former Chairman of UJA/Federation of New York and is the current Chairman of the Baruch College Fund. Larry is currently a director at BZL Biologics (a research company studying antibody based therapeutics) and is Chairman of the Rand Center for Corporate Ethics, Law and Governance.
