Instructor Information

Quick Actions (Only for Validated Instructor Accounts):

Since its inception, An Introduction to Business Ethics by Joseph DesJardins has been a cutting-edge resource for the business ethics course. The book’s unique multidisciplinary approach offers critical analysis and integrates the perspective of philosophy with management, law, economics, and public policy, providing a clear, concise, yet reasonably comprehensive introductory survey of the ethical choices available to us in business. Students are encouraged to think critically about issues from the perspectives of employee, customer, and citizen, as well as from the perspectives of business manager or executive. Instructors can customize An Introduction to Business Ethics (as print or ebook) to include selections from Discourses, McGraw Hill’s collection of more than 450 classical and contemporary philosophy readings, offering convenience in discussing ethical issues with the exemplars they prefer.
