Overview

Business Ethics: Case Studies and Selected Readings by Marianne Jennings provides real-life examples of ethical dilemmas, poor ethical choices, and wise ethical decisions from newspapers, business journals and the author's experiences as a consultant and board member. This text not only assists in fulfilling the AACSB's curriculum requirement but also exposes the reader to a critical issue - the strong sense of values that is essential to principled and successful leadership in the business world. The cases apply theory to reality in order to nurture or reinforce a needed sense of values in future business leaders.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
To show that "business ethics" is not an oxymoron, Jennings (legal and ethical studies, Arizona State U.) overviews the foundations of business ethics; provides 100-plus case studies in areas of ethical challenges from accounting (including Enron's Arthur Andersen) to whistle-blowing; and readings (1968-2003) by such pundits as Milton Friedman. Chapters also include discussion questions. Indexed by business discipline and company as well as subject. Dates of previous editions are not given. Annotation c.
