  • "Teaching Undergraduate Business Ethics"
    """Despite the fact that the academic discipline of business ethics is about 40 years old, it is still a relatively new field. Many questions about the pedagogy of business ethics are still being explored. Definitive standards have not been adopted by a majority of the business school administrators, faculty who teach business ethics, and the accreditation organizations that share responsibility for defining this discipline. There has also been a long- standing debate between advocates for integrating business ethics material into traditional business school courses and advocates for offering separate courses on business ethics. This debate suggested that there is a difference in the teaching goals of the business ethics faculty between those who teach separate courses and those who teach integrated courses. A quantitative survey, designed for this study, was sent to members of two professional organizations in order to reach faculty members who teach business ethics at the college level. Respondents were asked a series of demographic questions and were asked whether they taught integrated or separate business ethics courses. The participants rated the importance of six different teaching goals and the level of achievement their business ethics students experienced in awareness and mastery. A broad cross-section of experienced business ethics teachers participated in the survey. A total of 174 usable responses were tabulated and analyzed."
