Rosemarie Monge obtained her Ph.D. in ethics and legal studies from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 2013. She also earned a B.A. in international studies and B.S. in economics with a concentration in finance from the University of Pennsylvania. Before beginning her doctoral studies, she worked for a social venture capital fund in Philadelphia and volunteered with a women's micro-entrepreneurship center in rural Peru.

Her past research has dealt with the moral responsibilities of business managers when confronting apparent moral conflicts, the possibility of moral dilemmas under market conditions, and normative foundations of corporate social responsibility. Current research interests include adversarial ethics in the market and the normative issues arising from behavioral business ethics research, particularly the forces of bounded ethicality.
