Symposium and inaugural lecture Prof. Sharon Oded

Symposium and inaugural lecture Prof Sharon Oded

Prof. Sharon Oded will hold his inaugural lecture on Compliance programmes - beyond mere symbolism on Monday, 26 June 2017 from 12:30 - 16:45.

Dear friends,

Corporate scandals. Even though we hear about them repeatedly, they often still catch us by surprise. Recent events, such as highly publicised emission-cheating scandal, global corruption outrages and massive fraudulent accounting schemes are just a few reminders that the biggest scandals often begin with small acts of dishonesty.

• What is it that pushes people, including ordinarily honest people, to surrender to the temptation of quick profits and to engage in unethical behaviour?

• What can companies do to ensure they do not become the next big corporate scandal headline? 

• How should we deal with the emerging enforcement trends of issuing skyrocketing fines, demanding investigations and increasing whistleblower risks?

Please save Monday, 26 June 2017 from 12:30 - 16:45 in your calendar and join us at our symposium and inaugural lecture to discuss these topics at the Erasmus University Rotterdam. If you attend the symposium, please register via:

Additional information will follow. 

Kind regards,

Sharon Oded
