Jacob Shmukler (MBA ’15) Chosen as 2015 FASPE Business Fellow

By Darden Admissions-

Jacob Shmukler (MBA ’15), was chosen by FASPE (Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics) to be one of 12 business fellows who will participate in a two-week program in Germany this summer.

FASPE, a unique international ethics program now in its sixth year, explores the history of the Holocaust as a way to engage graduate students across five different fields (business, journalism, law, medicine, and religion) in an intensive study of contemporary ethics in their discipline. FASPE provides fellows with the opportunity to visit Auschwitz and travel in Germany and Poland, and helps them learn how to apply the lessons of history to the current ethical challenges they will confront in their own professions today and into the future.

Congratulations, Jacob!
