About the book

Business Ethics in Practice is essential reading for all undergraduate, postgraduate and MBA students looking to ensure they act responsibly and make the right decisions when faced with ethical dilemmas. Covering the impact of character and culture on managing ethics, leadership, governance and social responsibility, this book goes beyond ethical theory to show ethical considerations and challenges in practice.

With examples from both small businesses and large multinational corporates such as Google, BP and Nestle, Business Ethics in Practice shows how ethics must be considered by everyone in every sector, in a business of any size. With coverage of ethics in relation to staff, consumers, the supply chain, competitors and the environment, this book will ensure that students can think ethically and make effective ethical decisions. Supported by online resources including powerpoint slides and a guide for lecturers as well as practical tips for students, this book will help anyone studying business ethics in both their professional and personal development.
