The purpose of the Business and Society Program Area (BSPA) is to ensure that every Stern student graduates with a strong understanding of his or her responsibilities as a business professional, and with a keen appreciation for the role of ethics and law in creating and maintaining efficient markets and best business practices.
The focus of the Business and Society Program Area program is necessarily interdisciplinary: it challenges students to look beyond their functional expertise and understand how their work affects the broader issues of a firm’s performance, culture, and capital structure, as well as market creation, function, and regulation.
Business and Society Program Area course work draws upon ideas from many academic disciplines including accounting, economics, finance, law, marketing, and philosophy. Course cases and problems require students to integrate theory from these fields to arrive at balanced and well-considered judgments about complex business situations.
All Business and Society Program Area courses and events are designed to leverage Stern’s New York City location through the outstanding adjunct professors who teach in the program and the broad range of guest speakers who visit individual classes.
