NEW ALBANY, IN (Nov. 5, 2013) – The scandal of Enron was the largest white-collar crime in the history of the FBI to date. The FBI agent responsible for mounting the case against the energy company is sharing his story at Indiana University Southeast.
The embezzlement at Enron drew national attention in 2011. The case was assigned at the time to FBI Supervisory Special Agent Michael E. Anderson, and he called the company to accountability for their actions. Anderson will speak at 7 p.m., Nov. 6, in University Center room 127, sharing what Enron was and what exactly went wrong, along with how the FBI built their case against Enron’s highest-level executives.
Anderson will share his insight on the difficulties in building a criminal case against the 9th largest corporation in the country, and the subtle differences in ethical and unethical decisions.
This event is part of the IU Southeast Common Experience, and is co-sponsored by the IU Southeast School of Business. The IU Southeast Common Experience Program was instated to create a common dialogue across the campus, and each year presents a different topic. This year’s focus of Common Experience is “Public and Private Ethics: Who Decides?”
Anderson’s presentation is free and open to students, faculty, staff, and community members. For additional information or questions contact Cliff Staten at firstname.lastname@example.org.
