USC to the Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl - National Championship Competition

The USC Marshall Ethics Team - Chuong Nguyen, Stephanie Crim and Fiona Torrance - headed by Dr. Sandra Chrystal - compete on Thursday, February 22 in the Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl National Championship Competition in Cincinnati, Ohio at the Annual Meeting of the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics.

USC Marshall Ethics Team are one of 32 national teams selected to compete in legal, financial, and ethical analysis of 15 cases: http://ethics.iit.edu/eb/Nationalcases20071.pdf. Collectively, students try and find solutions to these vexing modern-day dilemmas by drawing on interdisciplinary learning and the wisdom of philosophers/ethicists.

Dr. Sandra Chrystal is one of the first professors at USC's Marshall School of Business to ever lead business students into this collaborative and interdisciplinary approach of learning applied ethics to business and corporate governance. Information on her classes are available through USC's Marshall School of Buisness Center of Management Communication - http://www.marshall.usc.edu/buco/.

Hello Fiona,
I don't know if you remember me. I met you at the USC WebFest a year ago. My name is Vojtech Horna and I am a public relations student.

I recently started a blog called PR(e)View for public relations students and professionals. I would like to comment on it on an article published in WSJ about how blogs can help you get a job. I remember that you told me that you got a job by having a blog.

Could you please email me a paragraph about how your blog helped you get a job? I would like to post it on my blog.
