Seletha Butler Named Ethics Champion

Founder of the “Corporate Governance” class in the Scheller College of Business, Seletha Butler is known as Tech’s very own champion for ethics. Her career and research have provided her with a vast knowledge and experience base in ethics.

Before coming to Tech, she graduated from Harvard Law School and practiced as an attorney for 14 years. Within this time period, she gained experience as both in-house counsel and external counsel for global firms focusing on mergers and acquisitions. As in-house counsel, she had the opportunity to understand how deals were put together through interaction with businesspeople; in contrast, as external counsel, she found she had to effectively probe businesses for details to gain strategic information to perform her work.

After practicing law, Butler went on to gain more knowledge by obtaining a Tech MBA with a global focus. She has always been enthusiastic about the academic world, so she accepted a teaching opportunity for undergraduates at Tech’s Scheller College of Business. In between teaching classes on business law and ethics, she completes research.
