Students from the University of New Mexico’s Anderson School of Management were faced with ethics questions and passed the test.

UNM placed first in the graduate competition of the eighth annual Daniels Fund Ethics Consortium Case Competition earlier this month.

The competition exposes college students to a business ethics case, similar to a situation they might face in their professional careers. It is designed to challenge students’ ethical reasoning, give them tools for decision-making, and raise awareness of the importance of principle-based ethics.

In advance of the competition, teams were provided with a case involving a fictional gene editing company. Students took on the role of a management consulting firm hired by the board of directors to help deal with issues and risks at the company. Each team conducted an analysis of the ethical issues and presented their prepared recommendations to a panel of judges.

After a question-and-answer session with the judges, the teams received a second part of the case – a crisis that provided new information and put a twist on the case. They had just four hours to re-analyze their original recommendations and make a second presentation to the judges.

UNM competed with schools from Colorado, Wyoming, Utah and New Mexico. Team members were Daniel Seymour, Shae Zsiga, Julianna Zarasura, Francine Briones and James Burton.
