What is Business Ethics?

Wednesday, Oct. 6, 2010

Ethics, the study of standards of behavior, is applied to the business world in this presentation by Markkula Ethics Center Executive Director Kirk O. Hanson.  Hanson defines ethics by talking about what it is and what it is not.

Hanson was a pioneer in the business ethics field.  He holds the John Courtney Murray S.J. University Professorship of Social Ethics at SCU and is the co-editor of a four-volume series, The Accountable Corporation.
