The outset of the 21st century was replete with numerous corruption scandals and a financial crisis, which spawned inquiry into the goals, stances, and curricula of business schools. Such concerns were bolstered by a seeming ethical disorientation by many businesses and businesspeople. Rather than developing business students who are skilled in creating codes of ethics, business schools should aim to develop educational models for future business leaders with ethical substance.
The Handbook of Research on Teaching Ethics in Business and Management Education is an examination of the inattention of business schools to moral education. This reference addresses lessons learned from the most recent business corruption scandals and financial crises, and also questions what we’re teaching now and what should be considered in educating future business leaders to cope with the challenges of leading with integrity in the global environment. The book is a comprehensive collection of research from experts in the field of business education and information ethics.
