Sareh Pouryousefi

Assistant Professor in Business Ethics, University of Nottingham

I am an Assistant Professor in Business Ethics at Nottingham University Business School.

My research focuses on professions as an important though underappreciated topic in business ethics. Even though they are private economic entities, professions have historically been portrayed by some as ethically motivated, and there is a long-standing literature that documents professional moral norms and codes. Recognizing this historical trajectory, my research critically examines the moral justification of professional obligations and the professional nature of corporate roles. Responsible management education for sustainability professionals, and the ethics of migration and transnational citizenship in the globalized professional marketplace are interrelated issues that contribute to the impact of my research agenda writ large. My work is situated at the intersection of normative business ethics and political philosophy.

My teaching activities at Nottingham University Business School involve convening the MBA and Executive MBA modules in Business Ethics. I also contribute to Undergraduate, MSc, and Executive Education modules in ethics -- including business & economic ethics, professional ethics, healthcare ethics, and banking ethics.
