Business Ethics and Values: Individual, Corporate and International Perspectives

Front Cover
FT Prentice Hall, 2006 - Business & Economics - 580 pages
"Business Ethics and Values" introduces students to the complexities and principles of ethical issues by focusing on developing ethical awareness and the ability to argue business ethics matters.

A proven resource, the second edition of this text continues to present a successful blend of concrete issues and academic theory, suitable for undergraduate and postgraduate students with or without practical experience of the world of organisations. It gives as much importance to individual conscience at work as it does to socially responsible behaviour at the corporate level and within the global business world.

Hallmark features:

  • Broad coverage of the many issues in this subject ensures that students see the whole picture.

  • The use of real-world case studies and simulations helps to stimulate debate and appreciate the multi-faceted aspects of ethical arguments.

New to this edition:

  • New material on the ethics of e-communication, sustainability and the ethical impact of globalisation ensures that students are learning from the most up-to-date material available.

  • Further analysis of Anglo-American approaches to corporate governance and their ethical underpinnings.

  • Short test and assignment questions at the end of each chapter help students to consolidate their learning.

  • More simulation exercises and activities give students the opportunity to reflect on their attitudes to this engaging subject.

A well-developed supplements package to support tutors and students includes an instructor's manual, PowerPoint slides and a companion website.
