focuses on building decision-making skills so that readers can arrive at, and defend, personal or company decisions in an objective, and convincing, manner.

Focus on Decision-Making: This text develops ethical theory with enough rigor and precision to help students deal with the complexity of real-life situations. Business Ethics as Rational Choice also provides readers an opportunity to build expertise through its numerous exercises and real-world dilemmas.

  • Build Skill Development: Business Ethics as Rational Choice is accompanied by 106 exercises that gradually develop students' analytical skills as the material progresses. The text then concludes with an introduction to cross-cultural business ethics.
  • Present Brevity and Realism: Rather than present full-length case studies or readings, this text presents 29 business dilemmas and challenges students to decide on the best course of action. Every dilemma, chosen for its realism, shows students how to analyze the dilemma by applying specific conditions for ethical conduct derived from the theory.
