Catholic Social Teaching: Addressing Globalization in Catholic Business Education
Ball, James B.; Martinez, Zaida; Toyne, Brian
Journal of Catholic Higher Education, v28 n1 p63-82 Win 2009
Although business schools are increasingly aware of the importance of globalization in educating future business leaders, their business programs have addressed globalization from a limited perspective that fails to provide students with a broader understanding of its impact on societies and its moral consequences. The conventional approach to the teaching of business ethics further exacerbates this problem. In this paper we argue that Catholic Social Teaching (SCT) can help address this deficiency at Catholic colleges and universities. First, we describe the impact of globalization on business education and limitation of ethical theories taught at business schools. We then explore our thesis that CST is a rich resource for business education that provides a moral foundation for readdressing the limited view of globalization.
