Companies today are racing to exploit the growing availability of "BIG DATA." Big
data helps firms create better products and services for customers and greatly improves
decision making; however, big data can create risks and complex ethical challenges.
Is your organization prepared to address the ethical implications of big data?
How does big data fit into your Corporate Social Responsibility strategy?
The University of Dallas Sustainable Business Network has invited thought leaders
from a variety of industries to share their insights into what big data means in their
industries. These experts will discuss their experiences and lessons learned for avoiding the pitfalls of big data, including privacy,
confidentiality, and transparency challenges.
Join us for this engaging, interactive session!
You will leave better prepared to take on the social, legal, and ethical issues that
big data presents to your organization!

On Friday, Sept. 13, the university community welcomed George Weigel, distinguished senior fellow of the Ethics and Public Policy Center and the father of two UD alumnae. Celebrated for his two-volume biography of St. John Paul II and many other intellectual contributions, Weigel presented an exploration of the current Catholic situation in light of a new interpretation of the past 250 years of the church's interaction with social, cultural, economic and political modernity.
Gabe Dickey, DBA '19, recently successfully defended his dissertation, titled "Exploring the Human Side of Audit Quality: Team Engagement and Partner Leadership Behaviors," for UD's Doctor of Business Administration. Dickey has spent his career in the accounting profession, the vast majority as a certified public accountant working in auditing. He began UD's DBA program three years ago, drawn in by his interest in broader business issues and the program's practitioner-oriented focus.
Carlos Tijerina came to UD as a Campus Safety officer 23 years ago. He has loved the camaraderie of the CSO, but it has always been his dream to become a police officer. Then, a little over a year ago, UD finally got a police department. On Sept. 10, Tijerina was sworn in by President Thomas Hibbs as an official part of the UDPD team.
