Ethical Issues In Business

This course is a self-paced course which may be taken at anytime the course is open.

Students get acquainted with both the field of business ethics and the reflection on economics in theological ethics. These general frameworks overlay a more finely grained consideration of business activities within the everyday and exceptional practices of corporations and other institutions – the corporate culture. Additionally, the small business person is relatively autonomous in his or her decision making; he or she does not have to answer to a large employee base or a corporate governing board.

I would also posit that it is beneficial to ensuring the consideration of ethics: a business that seeks to make repeated sales, over time, can generally be counted on to treat its customers better than a fly-by-night operation.

Ethics And Values

Business ethics (also corporate ethics) is a form of applied ethics or professional ethics that examines ethical principles and moral or ethical problems that arise in a business environment. Topics include: ethical theory, corporate social responsibility, global ethics, employee rights and obligations, consumer rights and product safety, ethical issues in marketing, obligations in accounting and investment and principles of environmental management. Through graduate and undergraduate classes, and through its activities and programs, the Center provokes thought and discussion of business ethics.

This further underscores the conclusion that it would be incorrect to apply ethics to an object, but to the action that involves its use.

Please explore the tabs at the top of this guide and don’t hesitate to contact John, Ed or Kim in the Crocker Business Library if you have any questions. Strictly speaking, if the harm a person does to himself is of no consequence to any other party, this action remains beyond the scope of ethics. Its social responsibilities require business to see its purpose beyond profit which is its concern to the society, to the customers and environment. A strategic plan will allow you to create a roadmap for the business to follow.

You hear about the ideas of moral agencies, moral personhood and moral responsibility and they all go together in some kind of package. Powell, B. & M. Zwolinski, 2012, The Ethical and …

Students must answer TWO questions with equal weighting, a compulsory question on stakeholders and a further question from a choice of THREE optional questions. Enron’s auditor, Arthur Andersen, was found guilty in a United States District Court of illegally destroying documents relevant to the SEC investigation which voided its license to audit public companies, effectively closing the business. Strudler (2017) legitimates altruistic behavior by firms by undermining the claim that shareholders own them, and so are owed their surplus wealth. In the case of two exam questions each question counts for half the points to earn.

It is impossible to discuss business ethics as a branch of academia without taking a look at the relationship between business ethics and public image. The unique position that the small business owner is in regarding the formation of an ethics policy yields a great responsibility. I will show examples of both good and …
