This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book reviews a modern understanding of corruption as a phenomenon and anti-corruption initiatives in management education. It also elaborates how corruption can mutate over time. The book continues with a presentation and discussion of experiences gathered when the Anti-Corruption Toolkit was implemented internationally. It sheds light on an additional key success factor to ensure that a modern anti-corruption curriculum is in place. The book clarifies that the Anti-Corruption Toolkit can and should be updated with locally relevant case studies. It aims to link the work of the Anti-Corruption Toolkit to the efforts and output of other Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) Working Groups. The book establishes the link with major progress achieved by colleagues in the other PRME Working Groups and suggests ways forward to build suitable anti-corruption curricula.
