  1. The Tower Building Challenge.A. Erin Bass & Erin G. Pleggenkuhle-Miles - 2016 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 13:325-348.
    The ability to consider and analyze different stakeholder interests is a skill required of today’s business students. This paper describes a 35-minute experiential exercise using Tinkertoys® or Legos® to demonstrate and reinforce the concept of stakeholder management. The exercise, the Tower Building Challenge, is targeted toward classes in business ethics, strategy, or decision-making and requires students to work in groups to build a tower with the underpinning challenge that each group member has a different interest in how the tower should (...)

  2. Overworked and Underpaid.Bhalloo Shafik & Burke Kathleen - 2016 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 13:403-406.
    Tracy has a new job, a stable paycheque, and a new lease on life in a very tight job market. As a new paralegal, just six months into her position at a law firm supporting two very busy personal injury lawyers, Tracy’s workload and pace demands that she regularly works after hours. Her overtime, however, does not show up on her paycheque. She knows other firms pay their employees for overtime, but in her law firm, overtime is expected and unpaid. (...)

  3. The Case of the Crooked Case Worker.P. CorbinThomas - 2016 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 13:407-412.
    Ethics practice is both relative and situational. Perhaps there is an area of no greater demonstration of these realities than where an organization, be it a public governmental entity and/or a quasi-governmental entity with government contracts has the duty of care owed to a vulnerable constituency as well as to other community stakeholders. These agencies have the public trust as well as the ethical caretaking concerns to master. In the following fact scenario and discussion, one would consider a situation where (...)

    An Experiential Field Study in Social Entrepreneurship.J. Frid Casey, Chowdhury Imran & G. Green Claudia - 2016 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 13:243-263.
    Research has shown social entrepreneurs are less likely to abandon their efforts when they develop skills to operate in situations where both social and economic demands must be balanced. However, students may have difficulty grasping the process by which such skills are acquired. They may also have only a vague understanding of how these skills are applied during both the creation and operation of new social ventures. This paper presents a theoretical and practical approach to teaching new venture creation and (...)

    Teaching and Learning Responsible Decision-Making in Business.Belinda Gibbons, Mario Fernando & Trevor Spedding - 2016 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 13:293-324.
    Practitioner and academic literature document serious concerns about the current approach to business higher education. Two key issues frequently noted are the silo disciplinary focus and the lack of exposure to responsible decision-making. Scholars and practitioners have proposed that the issues with the current undergraduate business education approach warrant the rethinking of traditional business teaching and learning models. This study proposes an alternate to teaching and learning responsible decision-making in undergraduate business education and reports the findings on the implementation of (...)

  6. Business Ethics Through the Medium of Film.Joseph M. Goebel & Manoj Athavale - 2016 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 13:265-292.
    We present an inventory of business ethics-related content to supplement and reinforce classroom education. The 23 films and documentaries introduced here allow the instructor to illustrate ethical issues in a manner which resonates with students. While sixteen of these selections involve fictitious plots, three selections are documentaries, and four selections are based on a dramatization of actual events. For each selection, we present a contextual synopsis and leading questions to help instructors demonstrate the existence of ethical issues so that students (...)

    Rediscovering Philosophia.A. Intezari, D. J. Pauleen & D. Rooney - 2016 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 13:147-168.
    With the excessive emphasis that modern PhD training places on the epistemological contribution of the thesis, a question that arises is: do PhD programmes help PhD students achieve philosophia – “love of wisdom”, or do the programmes just facilitate deepening and developing students’ knowledge? This paper challenges the modern approach to PhD training and by extension all academic research, and considers phronesiology, a wisdom-based approach to research design, to add value to traditional epistemic methodologies. In illustration, we use phronesiology and (...)

    Appropriate Training Should Turn Ethical Reasoning Into Ethical Practice.Alexander T. Jackson, Mathias J. Simmons, Bradley J. Brummel & Aaron C. Entringer - 2016 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 13:373-392.
    The prevalence of ethics training in organizations rose from 50% in 2003 to 76% in 2011. This paper reviews the current state of ethics training in organizations and proposes a new conceptual model for designing effective ethics training programs based on Rest’s model of ethical decision-making. We argue that it is not the content of ethics training that fails to produce ethical behavior; it is the method by which ethics training is delivered. Most organizations utilize training methods designed to disseminate (...)

  9. Cultivating Moral-Relational Judgement in Business Education.Walter P. Jarvis & Danielle M. Logue - 2016 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 13:349-372.
    In this paper we reflect on the question “what do we mean by teaching ‘business ethics’ at all?” In response we suggest that phronesis - a values-based disposition integrating practical and affective dimensions of practical knowledge - warrants consideration in addressing the topic of ethics but more broadly in legitimising university-based management education in the face of widespread public trust deficit in business and management education. In this paper we consider the Aristotelian origins of phronesis, including its distinctive connection to (...)

  10. Ethics in Entrepreneurship Education.Jodyanne Kirkwood, Melissa Baucus & Kirsty Dwyer - 2016 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 13:91-116.
    Ethics researchers focus on moral awareness as a precursor to ethical decision making, but they pay little attention to framing processes that precede moral awareness. This study addresses this gap in the literature to examine how a student entrepreneur starting a venture while completing an assignment frames issues and how these frames affect moral awareness. Framing does not occur in isolation but is part of a sensemaking process involving others. Using a single case study method, we capture an entrepreneur’s framing (...)

  11. An Experimental Approach to the Evaluation of Business Ethics Training.Nicki Marquardt - 2016 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 13:41-66.
    This article reports an experimental study aimed at evaluating the change of cognitive processes in ethical decision making before and after business ethics training. An experimental design was used to test the effectiveness of the training within a German university undergraduate business-oriented student sample. The cognitive processes in decision making were measured by using different direct instruments as well as indirect measures such as eye-tracking and the Implicit Association Test. The study yielded mixed results. On the one hand, significant changes (...)

  12. The Potential Impact of Education on Whistleblowing Behavior.F. Miller William & J. Shawver Tara - 2016 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 13:67-90.
    Accounting fraud and workplace misconduct has had dramatic economic and societal effects. Research suggests that most observations of workplace misconduct go unreported. We suggest that before graduating from an accounting program, students should be exposed to ethics interventions that prepare them to deal with whistleblowing situations they may encounter as future accounting professionals. This study finds that an ethics intervention increases students’ understanding of how accountants have manipulated information to complete an accounting fraud and increases their understanding of whistleblowing, its (...)

  13. The Relevance of Ethics, CSR, and Sustainability Topics in the Business School and Marketing Curricula.Jeananne Nicholls, Charles Ragland, Kurt Schimmel & Hair Jr - 2016 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 13:169-184.
    Based on a survey of deans and marketing department chairs, this study explores the business and marketing curriculum in the areas of ethics, corporate social responsibility, and sustainability. The findings indicate that there was limited support for providing students with an understanding of these topics, in believing the concepts provide a competitive advantage in the job market, or would be utilized by students at a later point in their education. Finally, the value placed on research in these areas was considerably (...)

  14. The Force-Fed Proposal.Sonia J. Toson - 2016 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 13:393-402.
    In 2012, Peter Lovenheim invested in a promising new company, Iroquois Brands. Subsequent to investing, he learned that the company was a distributor of the French delicacy, pâté de foie gras. As an animal rights activist, Lovenheim was aware of the animal cruelty methods used to produce pâté de foie gras. In an effort to bring awareness to the issue and ideally halt the corporation’s distribution of the product, Lovenheim crafted several strategic shareholder proposals, and ultimately, in March 2015, filed (...)

    In view of the consequences of the unethical behaviour of accountants as witnessed in the collapse of banks and near collapse of the capital market in Nigeria, the study examined the knowledge, awareness, and perceived importance students attached to accounting ethics education. The curriculum content of the Bachelor of Science degree programme in accounting of the selected federal universities was also examined to assess whether accounting ethics was offered as a standalone course or not. The survey method was used to (...)

  16. Comparing Thinking Style and Ethical Decision-Making Between Chinese and U.S. Students.Charles M. Vance, Judith A. White, Kevin S. Groves, Yongsun Paik & Lin Guo - 2016 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 13:117-146.
    This study provides a comparison of thinking style and ethical decision-making patterns between 386 U.S. students and 506 students from the People’s Republic of China enrolled in undergraduate business education in their respective countries. Contrary to our expectations, the Chinese students demonstrated a significantly greater linear thinking style compared to American students. As hypothesized, both Chinese and U.S. students possessing a balanced linear and nonlinear thinking style profile demonstrated greater ethical intent across a series of ethics vignettes. Chinese students also (...)

    We describe the project narrative and resulting case studies as an example of a successful engagement in business ethics education for two reasons: 1) to present an example of a pedagogical approach that engages business students in thoughtful research and consideration of complex ethical issues through a case writing exercise in collaboration with faculty, and 2) to provide three new cases and teaching notes suitable for use in multidisciplinary courses. We present a description of our experience along with the fruits (...)

  18. Increasing Ethical and Legal Awareness Through Community Outreach Programs Utilizing White-Collar Prisoners.Brad A. Weaver & Stephen B. Castleberry - 2016 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 13:185-205.
    A prisoner community outreach program, in which businesspeople and college business students have conversations with current white-collar inmates, has shown to be an effective tool in helping students and businesspeople realize the consequences of unethical behavior and breaking the law. A prisoner community awareness program is described and used as an example of how the practical application of positive principles can promote and empower ethical behavior, moral courage, and virtuousness. Audience’s reactions to this technique were positive, with listeners reporting heightened (...)
