Practicing Sustainable Business Assignment Brief
You are invited to address ONE of the following statements:
- Critically evaluate the proposition that business ethics is an oxymoron.
- Critically assess the proposition that corporations should appoint people on their merits and do not have an ethical obligation to increase diversity in the workplace.
- Critically evaluate the statement: “Of course, corporations should avoid treating their customers in an unethical manner. After all, in the long run, unethical behaviour towards customers only serves to harm them”.
- Critically assess the following statement: “Third sector organisations should have no part to play in the world of business”.
You should draw upon the issues covered in the module, for example, business ethics, ethical decision making, managing business ethics, and its relationship with stakeholders, employees, customers, civil society, government(s) or social enterprise and social entrepreneurship. Naturally the use of the core texts, Crane and Matten and its supporting blog, and Carroll and Buchholtz are very useful starting points to get ideas and materials to undertake this assignment. However, you are not restricted to these sources; the use of other appropriate texts and materials is strongly encouraged as well. However, you must be selective in what you use in your assignment to evidence your response and to enable you to produce an assignment of sufficient depth and quality for Level 6 work.
