Twenty years ago, the first edition of Business Ethics: Ethical Decision Making and Cases became the first textbook to use a managerial framework to teach business ethics. The Eighth Edition builds on this record of success and provides an enhanced teaching package to help teach the fastest-growing business course in the last two decades. In all higher education institutions there are three times as many courses in business ethics than there were in 1990. This dramatic increase has occurred as a result of stakeholder concerns about ethical conduct and public policy to encourage corporate ethics programs. No longer is ethics considered merely an independent personal decision rather, managers are held responsible both within and outside their company for building an ethical organizational culture. As the market leader with over 550 institutions using our book, we are working to keep you, the instructor, up to date on the ever-changing issues and research within business ethics. The Eighth Edition continues to change the way business ethics is taught and reflects the issues, challenges, and opportunities students will face in managing ethics in any organization. While we base each chapter on ethical frameworks and research from the academic community, we also include knowledge and best practices from business and public policy decisions from governments and international entities. This real-world approach to business ethics helps prepare students to face ethical challenges in business, and develop an ability to make ethical decisions in our global economy.
