Michael C. Jensen Delivers Georgetown’s MSB Commencement

Michael C. Jensen, SSRN‘s Chairman and Professor Emeritus gave the commencement address to the graduating class of Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business on Saturday May 21.

Jensen spoke to the class about integrity, authenticity and being committed to something bigger than oneself – topics drawn from work with his co-author, Werner Erhard .

Jensen explains that integrity is a matter of one’s word – nothing more, nothing less.  Both personal and organizational integrity, he said, lead to high performance and trust.

Full video here, Jensen begins at about 10 minutes in.

During the commencement, the university also awarded Jensen an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters, honoris causa.

If you haven’t seen Mike talk previously, I encourage you watch his address.  His research has had an incredible impact on me both personally and professionally.  Thanks Mike!
