Integrating Catholic Social Teaching into Undergraduate Accounting Courses
Haen, Jason
Journal of Catholic Higher Education, v32 n1 p83-97 Win 2013
The world of work that students enter after graduation will not mirror the straightforward world portrayed by their textbooks. They will be required to make decisions that will affect more than the bottom line. Faculty at Catholic business schools can integrate the components of Catholic social teaching (CST) into the classroom to help equip students with the tools necessary to discern appropriate courses of action when confronted with ethical decisions during their careers. This article discusses the reasons why business faculty should embrace the opportunity to incorporate CST into their classrooms and provides specific examples of how this can be done in introductory financial and intermediate accounting courses. (Contains 15 footnotes.)
