Publication Date



Many academicians are asking the following question: “Are we ill-preparing our business students if we fail to offer future business professionals the opportunity to engage in a greater understanding of the ethical decision making process?” The authors provide a current review of the literature on the state of ethics education in business curricula, as well as a detailed justification and rationale for incorporating ethical concepts as a core course in business school programs. They conclude with a wealth of resources, approaches, and instructional strategies to help develop a culture of integrity, inclusive of simulations, articles, cases, role-playing, and presentations.
