Business Ethics: New Challenges in a Globalised World available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
- Macmillan Education UK
This core adoptable text provides a comprehensive overview of the challenges facing organisations as they pursue global business activities. Ethics in business has grown to be of increasing importance in the world of today, as companies have been placed in the moral spotlight by shareholders, consumers, employees and governments. The growing complexities of the global economy demand a broader and a deeper view of business ethics than that offered by current management approaches that focus on reforming corporate behaviour. Business Ethics places business ethics in a richer contextual setting, focusing on the challenges that businesses must now confront, and exploring how these issues can be met by a rethinking of business models, goals and strategies.
Business Ethics is the ideal textbook for students taking business ethics modules at undergraduate, postgraduate and MBA levels.

What People are Saying About This
Business Ethics: New Challenges in a Globalised World offers a practical look at the issues under consideration, and will contribute to a student gaining real insight and entering into critical dialogue on the topic of ethics in international business. Students using this text will be reminded of the fact that ethical issues are broader and deeper than we would like to think, and are encouraged to work out for themselves what they might do, or what they think others should do, in less than clear-cut situations.' – Andrea McLachlan, University of Waikato, New Zealand
'This book discusses the legal, social, political and international issues that set the context for some of the great ethical challenges we face in the world today. The integration of real life case studies and ethical theory provides practical application that will enable students to gain a much broader understanding of the issues involved.' - Carole Parkes, Aston University, UK
'Introducing a topic as complex and as widely discussed as business ethics is a very difficult task. However, Morrison succeeds in presenting a concise and well-written account of the field and its current issues. The book is a particularly good read for undergraduate students who want to be introduced to the field of business ethics.' – Berend van der Kolk, University of Groningen, The Netherlands
'This is an expertly written textbook. I am impressed by the international outlook of the book, the clear writing style and the excellent contemporary cases and examples' Marianna Fotaki, Warwick Business School, UK
