Name: Developing Ethics Codes and Statements of Values
ID: m14319
Language: English (en)
Summary: This module has been revised to provide students in Business Administration experience with different approaches to developing codes of ethics. Studying the Pirate Credo (to which this module links) helps students understand that codes embody values. It also clues students into the fact that codes of ethics are of different kinds and fulfill different functions. Exercises have been added to link this module to an Ethics Bowl module and to the module on Moral Ecologies. Finally, it reports on a successful effort by the College of Business Administration of the University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez to design and implement a statement of values in response to AACSB requirements. This module is being developed as a part of an NSF-funded project, "Collaborative Development of Ethics Across the Curriculum Resources and Sharing of Best Practices," NSF SES 0551779.
