Business Ethics Everywhere

July 31, 2012 988

Business ethics issues are cropping up every day in the news, but not always taking hold in the mind of the management student. How can instructors give future business leaders the tools they need to behave ethically?

Susan D. Baker of Morgan State University and Debra R. Comer of Hofstra University, who published “Business Ethics Everywhere’: An Experiential Exercise to Develop Students’ Ability to Identify and Respond to Ethical Issues in Business” in the Journal of Management Education (JME) February 2012 issue, created an easy-to-implement classroom exercise to teach about ethics through real-world examples. Janet Gillespie, an associate editor of JME, talked recently with the authors about why this exercise hit home with students. Click here to listen to the podcast and here to subscribe on iTunes.

Susan D. Baker, Associate Professor of Management in the Earl G. Graves School of Business and Management at Morgan State University, received her Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior and Development from George Washington University. She teaches classes in business ethics, leadership, and organizational behavior. Her current research interests include ethical behavior in organizations, followership, and role-sharing and role exchange between followers and leaders.

Debra R. Comer is a Professor of Management in the Zarb School of Business at Hofstra University. She received her B.A. with honors in psychology from Swarthmore College and her M.A., M. Phil., and Ph.D. in organizational behavior from Yale University.
