Summary

Designed as a business ethics text for use in management or business law courses that use a case study approach, this text provides real-life examples of ethical dilemmas, poor ethical choices, and wise ethical decisions from newspapers, business journals and the author's experiences as a consultant and board member. This text not only assists in fulfilling the AACSB's curriculum requirement but exposes students to a critical issue - the strong sense of values that is essential to principled and successful leadership in the business world.
