Ethics Education in Business Schools: Emerging Issues and Challenges
Keywords:Education, ethics, ethical leadership, management
Ethical education is a perpetual learning process, lasting from childhood until the end of life. Human beings continually learn about ethical values, behavioural justification, and moral conscience, whether it is from the family, which is the basic and fundamental cell of society in its entirety, or from politics or one’s workplace. University students who prepare for an occupation with a high level of social responsibility have a chance to acquire knowledge about morality, ethics, and values. Managers and those studying management also need to consider ethics. Ethics education proves to be vital in various professions, and the learning process in this field could be more effective in the training programmes of those professions. Universities which offer management programmes include ethics education and teach the knowledge and skills of ethical behaviour, which students go on to practice in their respective workplaces. The question, however, is, “What does this school offer in ethics education?” The main goal of this article is to explore which areas of ethics in tertiary education in the Czech Republic are offered in management degrees, and how this is connected with true ethical leadership.
