Alexei Michel Marcoux, PhD

Professor

Marketing and Management

Dr. Alexei Marcoux is a Professor of Business, Ethics and Society and Institute for Economic Inquiry Senior Scholar at Creighton University Heider College of Business. He believes a worthwhile education should be timeless, rather than timely and should repay you throughout your life.

He says, “in my courses, I seek to focus my students’ attention on the enduring questions that will confront them throughout their careers and encourage them to develop ways to think about and act on them.”

Dr. Marcoux’s research interests are in moral foundations of commercial transactions, entrepreneurship theory, and PPE (philosophy, politics and economics). A two-time winner of the Best Paper Award from the Society for Business Ethics, he has published scholarly articles in Business Ethics QuarterlyJournal of Business EthicsJournal of Markets & MoralityJournal of Private Enterprise, and Reason Papers.

Dr. Marcoux is co-author (with Al Gini) of two textbooks, Case Studies in Business Ethics (6th ed., Prentice Hall, 2009) and The Ethics of Business: A Concise Introduction (Rowman & Littlefield, 2012). He is co-editor (with Eugene Heath and Byron Kaldis) the Routledge Companion to Business Ethics (Routledge, 2018). Along with Chris MacDonald, he is founding co-editor of the Business Ethics Journal Review, founding co-editor of the online Concise Encyclopedia of Business Ethics, and co-curator of the business ethics news aggregation website Business Ethics Highlights.

Dr. Marcoux received his BA in economics from the University of San Francisco and both his MA in Philosophy and PhD in Applied Philosophy from Bowling Green State University. In addition to his research and teaching, Dr. Marcoux enjoys craft cocktails, curling and motorcycling.
