Teaching Ethics and Social Responsibility: An Evaluation of Undergraduate Business Education at the Discipline Level
Nicholson, Carolyn Y.; DeMoss, Michelle
Journal of Education for Business, v84 n4 p213-218 Mar-Apr 2009
Organizations and society at large recognize that ethically and socially responsible behavior plays a crucial role in good business practices. This realization has led employers to expect and demand that business schools facilitate the training of students in ethics and social responsibility. However, research is mixed on how well business schools are responding to these pressures. In the present study the authors assessed curriculum coordinators' (e.g., department chairs', program administrators') perceptions of the level of inclusion of ethics and social responsibility at the level of specific programs and majors. The authors suggest that there is a perceived deficiency in the degree of integration of ethics and social responsibility into various specific disciplines. They discuss conclusions from their findings, in separate disciplines and collectively, with an emphasis on implications for curricular design and oversight. (Contains 4 tables.)
