Fulfilling Our Obligation: Perspectives on Teaching Business Ethics
By Sheb L. True, Linda Ferrell, O.C. Ferrell

"Because the backgrounds of the contributors and their perspectives vary, like a copious buffet, this collection offers a wide and varied selection. The articles address some key questions about business ethics, e.g., what it is, whether it can be taught, whether it should be “infused” in business courses or taught in a stand-alone course, who should teach it, how it ought to be taught, and how the results of teaching business ethics can be assessed. There is much food for thought here."

“Given the long history of ethical and legal abuses by business leaders, there can be no debate about the importance of ethics in the curriculum. We may differ on how it should be integrated into the curriculum and this volume effectively explores both what to do and how to do it. The important thing is that business schools will abdicate their own moral obligations of educating future business leaders if they do not embrace this vital of business leadership education. If not us, who will do it?”

“Sheb True, Linda Ferrell, and O.C. Ferrell have assembled a truly outstanding collection of faculty and practitioners who offer leading edge insights into the application of ethics inside and outside the classroom. Cases, articles, vignettes and theoretical constructs from an incredibly talented array of contributors makes for must reading in any business courses dealing with ethics today.”

“On the heels of recent corporate scandals, True (ethics and marketing, Kennesaw State University) et al. assemble 18 essays by business professionals, academics, and philosophy scholars from the US that propose methods to change the corporate world through improved ethics education in business schools. Many of the essays were based on papers given at the 2004 Teaching Business Ethics Conference sponsored by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International. The essays range from ideas about challenges faced by teachers, approaches from philosophy professors and industry executives, to curriculum and techniques.”
