Aiming Higher Interviews

Creighton University Heider College of Business graduate students in Dr. Beverly Kracher’s Business, Ethics, and Society class are assigned Aiming Higher Interviews. The assignment is to interview a Greater Omaha Better Business Bureau Integrity Award Winner, a recipient of the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce’s Hall of Fame Award, or an Alliance Trustee. The purpose is to identify and clarify the values that ground business practices; the ethical dilemmas faced and how they are addressed; and the impact a city's culture has on ethical business practices. The Business Ethics Alliance supports a market system that allows us to run financially sustainable organizations and make healthy profits as long as it is done with honor, integrity, and fair deals.  These interviews illustrate that many for-profit and not-for-profit leaders aim high, and seek to achieve this noble vision.
