Chapter Number & Title – chapter 6 Teaching ethics in business

No topic in business is tougher – or more rewarding – to teach than ethics, Rewarding both for the teacher and for pupils' grades. Ethics is a topic that provokes classroom debate and can tease out kneejerk reactions by pupils that can mar exam papers. Top performance requires subtlety of language and an understanding of nuance. Success in this area requires effective use of up-to-date, real world case materials – and a willingness to help pupils turn outrage or indifference into balanced argument that can still lead to powerful conclusions.
