Synopsis: This text provides a thorough training and thought-provoking experience on business ethics. To teach students the critical skill of applying ethical principles in a business setting, this text pulls together from the author's vast teaching and business experience an incredible array of real-life examples of ethical dilemmas, poor ethical choices, and wise ethical decisions from newspapers, business journals and the author's own experiences as a consultant and board member. Case studies coupled with the text's readings apply theory to reality in order to nurture or reinforce a needed sense of values in future business leaders.
