Corporate ethics is a hot topic these days. But, at Houston-based Newfield Exploration the issue isn’t a new one. Newfield CEO and President David Trice recently discussed the company’s approach to ethics with first-year Mays MBA students. Trice also addressed the core values inherent in the company, says first-year MBA student Lisa Buckley. “You can never have too many reminders about the importance of ethics,” she says. In fact, Newfield’s core values are closely tied to the Aggie code of honor, as Joe Foster ’56 founded the company, which employs many A&M graduates. Buckley and several other first-year MBAs had the opportunity to interact with Trice and Steven Campbell, head of investor relations, during a luncheon. Not being a native-Texan, Buckley says she came to Mays to become part of the Aggie Network. She didn’t expect it so soon. “After my conversing with Steven during lunch, he has already helped me set up three interviews for possible summer internships,” she says. “The Aggie Network is real.”
