    Assessment of Zakat and Waqf Management Curricula in Indonesia Based on a Competency-based Curriculum.Wasilah Abdullah, Dodik Siswantoro, Sri Nurhayati & Evony Silvino Violita - 2022 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 19:67-76.
    The curricula of the undergraduate study programs on Zakat and Waqf management in Indonesia are still in their early stages of development. In this research, we aim to evaluate these curricula using a competency-based approach towards several study programs. Specifically, we compare the needs of Zakat and Waqf management with the curricula of undergraduate study programs in Indonesian universities. To fulfil our objective, we conduct several interviews with the program heads and practitioners. We also propose a particular curriculum for the (...)

    Contribution of Yoga to Business Ethics Education.Anand N. Asthana - 2022 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 19:93-108.
    This research looks at how yoga can contribute to business ethics education in MBA programmes. The effectiveness of yoga practice in breathwork, movement, and meditation was evaluated using a Randomised Controlled Trial on participants of Executive MBA programmes. Half the participants (n = 125) were assigned to the intervention group and the other half placed on the waiting list for the next programme and used as the control group. Mediation analysis was used for statistical analysis to measure the influence of (...)

    A Content Guide to Environmental, Social and Governance Investing for Faculty and Students.Geoffrey G. Bell & Benjamin S. Patt - 2022 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 19:169-192.
    Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) investing is increasingly popular (Giese, Lee, Melas, Nagy, & Nishikawa 2019), and is now percolating into sustainability textbooks and pedagogy. This is problematic because many faculty teaching sustainability do not have a background in finance, and thus find teaching ESG challenging. This paper develops pedagogical resources to teach the fundamentals of ESG investing, be that in a Foundations of Sustainable Management course or a Business Ethics course. We do this by developing four learning objectives: (1) (...)

    Globalizing Corporate Social Irresponsibility: A Tale of Two Toxic Cities.Mamoun Benmamoun, Christine Ascencio, James E. Fisher & Yunmei Kuang - 2022 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 19:209-222.
    La Oroya, Peru, and Herculaneum, Missouri, USA, are two cities 4,000 miles apart but beset with common health and environmental risk: high levels of lead contamination. A key participant in this unfolding tale of environmental disaster has been The Renco Group, a privately held investment holding company based in New York. This case study sheds light on The Renco Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in a developing country (Peru) as distinct from CSR in a developed country (USA) by presenting the (...)

    Of COVID-19 and Chickens: The Ethics of One Workplace Safety Policy Early in the Pandemic.Kathleen Burke & Shafik Bhalloo - 2022 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 19:247-252.
    The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic created considerable challenges for the food supply chain. One of the industries hardest hit was the agricultural and agri-foods industry. This industry has long faced worker shortages and regularly relied on temporary foreign workers. In this case, Roosters, a chicken processing and production company in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, had just come off a very costly 12-day closure following a COVID-19 exposure risk in two of its processing plants. With the company back in operation (...)

    Individual Decisions and Public Trust: The PCAOB and KPMG.Katherine Campbell & Duane Helleloid - 2022 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 19:231-246.
    What might seem like a small ethical transgression by an individual can lead to a series of subsequent decisions, and result in serious fraud. This can not only impact the individuals involved and their organizations, but also erode public trust in firms and institutions. When Brian Sweet left a position with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB), an organization that oversees the inspection of audits, and went to work for KPMG, one of the large accounting firms whose audits he (...)

    Digital Simulation: Applying Critical Thinking to the Practice of Ethical Decision Making.Jay L. Caulfield & Felissa K. Lee - 2022 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 19:35-66.
    Teaching the nuances of ethical decision making is particularly challenging in fully online, asynchronous courses where real-time discussion is not an option. Digital simulations, in the context of an integrative online ethics course, can offer applied learning and assessment experiences. However, scholarship on the impact of digital simulations for teaching ethical decision making is limited. The purpose of this study is to explore whether digital simulation used as an assessment for ethical reasoning and complex decision making is effective in helping (...)

    Promoting Ethical Behaviours by Instant Mindfulness Meditation in Ethics Education.Puneeta Goel, Rupali Misra, Komal Kapoor & Simmi Khurana - 2022 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 19:77-92.
    There is a growing need to identify what really can converge classroom learning to the real-life practising of ethical principles. We examine if the effectiveness of ethics education can be improved through meditation-based mindfulness intervention. Our baseline experiment is a procedurally modified version of the anagram exercise (Ruedy and Schweitzer 2010) for measuring unethical behaviour. We introduce a brief meditation intervention to induce instant mindfulness. Our findings indicate substantive evidence confirming the positive effect of the state of mindfulness on ethical (...)

    Buying Native Sovereignty.Duane Helleloid - 2022 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 19:193-208.
    For centuries, outside business organizations have sought to enter into business relationships with indigenous populations, often benefitting both parties. However, the power imbalance that foreign settlers had over indigenous peoples often led to exploitative relationships whereby the indigenous people were marginalized and at times treated inhumanely. While the nature of trade and relationships has changed over time, the special status that native tribes enjoy in U.S.A. continues to attract attention from business enterprises. In the past few years, various organizations have (...)

    Teaching Kohlberg’s Levels of Moral Development: Using Jojo Rabbit to Highlight the Journey.Douglas W. Lyon & Mika Kusar - 2022 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 19:137-152.
    This classroom exercise uses the movie Jojo Rabbit to teach students Kohlberg’s three levels and six stages of moral development. This is a helpful way to teach the concept of moral development because it helps students to visualize the nature of each of the stages and how one might move through them. It is appropriate for both undergraduate and graduate classes in management principles, ethics, organizational behavior, and leadership. The exercise can be completed in a 60 or 90 minute class. (...)

    The Need to Personalise Business Ethics Education.Fódhla McGrane - 2022 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 19:153-168.
    Can business ethics textbooks and modules prepare business students to manage ethical challenges if they bypass students’ personal ethics? This paper is an academic reflection by a Higher Education, business ethics tutor in the UK and Ireland. It charts a pedagogic journey of moving away from lecturing based on the contents of the standard, “impersonal”, business ethics textbook, to moving towards facilitating interaction among students about their ethics in all parts of life, and especially “at work” in their part-time employment. (...)

    The Ethical Guardrails Model: A Tool for Understanding and Reducing Ethical Mistakes.N. L. Reinsch, Vanda Pauwels & Clyde D. Neff - 2022 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 19:109-136.
    We build on the work of Moore and Gino (2015) and of Rest (1983, 1986) to develop the Ethical Guardrails Model (EGM). The EGM shows students how personal behaviors, relationships, and habits can help them to avoid ethical mistakes in the workplace. The EGM illustrates the components of ethical business behavior, incorporates a new deliberative component, specifies five ways in which ethical behavior may become derailed, and describes practices that can help a person to avoid derailment. We also describe our (...)

    Hertz Rent a Car, Go to Jail.Rickey E. Richardson, H. Darin Barton & Melanie S. Richardson - 2022 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 19:223-230.
    Over 200 lawsuits were filed against the Hertz rental car company by former customers who were arrested as a result of the company’s poor inventory control system and its implementation of two business practices which led to the filing of unsubstantiated stolen car reports with police. According to a whistleblower, these practices essentially meant Hertz was using police “as a repo company and the court system as a collection company” (News Nation 2022, 4:24). Consequences to the individuals who were falsely (...)

    Enhancing Ethical Reflection of Managers Through Andragogy and Socratic Approaches: A Multi-University Comparison.Michael Segon, Christopher Booth, Jeremy Pearce & Firew Beshah - 2022 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 19:5-34.
    There have long been debates about the teaching of business ethics. Should business ethics be taught like functional business courses like marketing, law and strategy using behaviourist or teacher centred models in business courses? Or should adult learning methodologies adopt Socratic method with reflective practice as a means of promoting ethical self-awareness and enhancing personal development in meta-cognition and learning? This paper canvases literature pertaining to how business ethics and fields such as CSR should be taught. It outlines the methodological (...)

    DEI Maturity: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at a Not-for-Profit Organization.Christophe Van Linden, Paula T. Roberts & D. Lee Warren - 2022 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 19:253-274.
    This teaching case focuses on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) at a museum. At the beginning of 2021, the organization found itself in a crisis when more than 2,000 community members and 85 anonymous employees demanded the resignation of the museum’s President due to the language he defended in a job posting advocating for a job applicant to diversify audiences while “maintaining the traditional white core audience of the museum” (Salaz 2021). Students take on the role of an external consultant (...)
