Can business activities and decisions be virtuous?
This is the first business ethics textbook to take a virtue ethics approach. It explains how virtue ethics compares with alternative approaches to business ethics, such as utilitarianism and deontology, and argues that virtue ethics best serves the common good of society.
Looking across the whole spectrum of business – including finance, governance, leadership, marketing and production – each chapter presents the theory of virtue ethics and supports students’ learning with chapter objectives, in-depth interviews with professionals and real-life case studies from a wide range of countries.
Business Ethics: A Virtue Ethics and Common Good Approach will be a valuable text for advanced undergraduates and Masters-level students on business ethics courses.
