AbstractAs a human endeavor and profession, management must be built on sound ethical underpinnings. Accordingly, introductory management courses customarily introduce business ethics and corporate social responsibility in order to develop the students’ ethical awareness and reasoning. Yet, some common misconceptions regarding the discipline are also present in these introductions to the topic, as evidenced by a review of a sample of popular management textbooks. Their discussion, with recommendations, aims to improve the teaching and learning of ethics in management and, hence, managerial problem solving and decision making.
