Hello Columbia Business School and Bernstein Center Community!
My name is Shravalya “Shravy” Valet, and I’m the Chair of the Columbia Business School Executive MBA Student Leadership and Ethics Board (SLEB).
Last year, I acted to the best of my ability towards accomplishing the goals I had set last Fall. I promise to continue with such enthusiasm over the next year at not only realizing my personal goals for SLEB, but also the overall mission of leadership and ethics at Columbia Business School and that of the Bernstein Center.
My goal as Chair is to support members in their pursuit for encouraging ethics and leadership at CBS. EMBA SLEB members provide the unique value proposition of currently holding impactful leadership roles in their respective industries – from healthcare and non-profit organizations to finance and architecture. This year, each member will develop and implement an individual goal tailored to how they can bring to light the leadership and ethics dilemmas they currently face in their industries to the greater CBS Community.
As EMBA students, we bring experience and current leading industry standards to CBS that is of great value to the community, both for the EMBA and MBA audience. Capitalizing on this and utilizing our collective experiences, the EMBA SLEB will set in motion plans to improve the CBS curriculum and co-curricular activities. For example taking on a data collection effort of the case studies from core and evaluate the rigor we place as a program on the ethical and moral implications as well as the content of the case studies themselves.
We will also expand on our goal from last year, which was to get everyone in EMBA talking about ethics and how it affects their business/careers with their peers at least once before they graduate. To help achieve this goal, we started #EthicsMatters conversations last year which were extremely well-received and individual CBS members, EMBA and MBA programs alike, experienced the value of such small, candid discussions.
