Ethics Corner

By Rahul Garg ‘13

Dear T-birds,

Welcome to the Ethics Corner sponsored by the Thunderbird Honor Council. In an effort to better educate our student body on ethical business practices, we will present to you an article, news link, or story from our own students that helps to showcase what is going on in the business world with ethical business behavior. We hope to create a dialogue between students to better prepare themselves for what might lie ahead in their careers. Moreover, we hope to provide information to better prepare you for your life ahead.

This week’s featured article titled, “Does an ‘A’ in Ethics Have Any Value?” aims to provide some insight into the increased efforts by B-Schools to ensure that courses in ethics will have a greater impact on students after they graduate.

“Business schools have been giving students some education in ethics for at least the past 25 or 30 years, and we still have these problems, says John Delaney, dean of University of Pittsburgh’s College of Administration and Katz Graduate School of Business.”

The article, “Does an ‘A’ in Ethics Have Any Value?” by Melissa Korn can be found in the print edition of the Wall Street Journal (2/7/13, B4) or online at the following link:
