Core values are often a contested space and yet without them our sense of purpose or meaning is often compromised. Dr Rocchi will explore the human need for core values and the deep fulfilment we experience when we align our lives to the right core values.

Beauty is something to be admired and sought after. It takes us outside of ourselves. Dr Rocchi will explore this transcendece of beauty. Is it the face of something more? Can the human experience of beauty be a profoundly religious, spiritual experience?

Dr. Marta Rocchi is an Assistant Professor in Corporate Governance and Business Ethics at DCU Business School. Marta holds a PhD in Business from the University of Navarra (Pamplona, Spain) with a specialization on the ethics of finance, and an MSc in Economics and BSc in Economics both from the Sapienza University of Rome (Italy). She was appointed Visiting Scholar at the Hoffman Center for Business Ethics (Bentley University, Waltham, MA, USA), and she is a founding member of the Virtue Ethics in Business Research Group of the University of Navarra. She was awarded the “Society for Business Ethics Founders’ Award” in 2016 as Emerging Scholar of the Society for Business Ethics and the 2016 Rafael Termes Research Prize on ethics and finance.
