This course adds an interesting twist to the ancient question: “Why lead an ethical life?” Philosophers and psychologists have long argued that ethical behavior contributes to personal happiness…but what about the other way around?

This course is taught by Greg Conderacci, a BLI Senior Fellow, marketing consultant, and adjunct faculty member at the Johns Hopkins schools of public health and business. A former Wall Street Journal staff reporter whose background includes a decade of working for the church and a stint as chief marketing officer for an investment bank, he brings a unique perspective to this course,

  • Tips and tricks: how do we do this?
