9780273651949: Business Ethics and Values

Offering a successful blend of academic theory and concrete issues, "Business Ethics and Values" is suitable for undergraduate, and postgraduate students with or without practical experience in the business world. With chapters reflecting a series of lectures, the book serves as a self-contained course in business ethics assuming little prior knowledge of formal business ethics education on the part of the student. Crucial to this new book is the way it introduces the student to the complexities and principles of ethical issues through the medium of real-world case examples and simulations. These features aim to stimulate debate and enable the reader to appreciate and understand the relevance and many-sidedness of ethical arguments.

From the Back Cover:

Fisher and Lovell, Business Ethics and Values 3rd edition

Q    How do corporate social responsibilities and good or bad corporate practice impact on business success in a global economy?

Q    Are individuals responsible for the ethical outcomes of companies’ actions, or are companies themselves responsible?

Q    How do you determine what course of action has the best ethical outcome for any given business situation?

Fisher and Lovell offer the reader a comprehensive introduction to the ideas and complexities of the subject of ethics in the contemporary business world whilst making it relevant to today’s business students through the inclusion of frequent interesting examples and activities that put the reader in a position where ethical questions must be considered and debated. 

This third edition offers increased coverage of sustainability and more chances for illustration and discussion of ethics in the messy day to day practicalities of modern business through:

  • two new longer case studies in the final chapter that integrate ideas and issues from the whole book and provide an opportunity to explore how different perspectives and multiple problems interconnect in real life situations.
  • new Video Clips of interviews with Managers from companies around the world who discuss issues of ethical bearing in their business.
  • new Podcasts that discuss how issues in the news can be viewed from an ethical standpoint.
