AbstractThough no agreement exists among business schools and their faculties regarding what should be the content and pedagogy of a course in business ethic, the authors of this article hold that regardless of one’s biases regarding the content and pedagogy, the effective teaching of business ethics requires that the instructor in designing and delivering a business ethics course needs to focus on four principal questions. These include: (1) what are the objectives or targeted learning outcomes of the course? (2) what kind of learning environment should be created?
