Rosemarie Monge, PhD, teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in the Department of Ethics and Business Law at the University of St. Thomas Opus College of Business. Her courses seek to bridge the moral and ethical theory in philosophy with the kinds of concrete questions that arise in the business world, while incorporating evidence-based techniques. Monge aims to help students act in line with their professed good values and empower others to do so, as well.

Monge obtained her PhD in ethics and legal studies from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 2013. She earned a BA in international studies and BS in economics with a concentration in finance from the University of Pennsylvania. Before beginning her doctoral studies, she worked for a social venture capital fund in Philadelphia and volunteered with a women’s micro-entrepreneurship center in rural Peru.

Monge’s business ethics research is grounded in normative ethics, particularly the non-consequentialist and virtue ethics approaches. Her current research interests include adversarial ethics in the market and the permissibility of imposing risks of harm to third parties not directly involved in a commercial transaction with the firm.
