A Framework for Ethical Decision Making from SCU Leavey

We all have an idea of what we think is “good” and “right”. When it comes to ethical dilemmas in business, however, you’ll often find that conflicting values, goals, and interests can cause tension and sometimes further escalate an already sensitive issue. Higher education and professional training rarely equips you with the skills and mindset to adequately handle these situations— but at Santa Clara University, we make them a priority.

To help you navigate ethically difficult situations, the SCU Leavey School of Business has created the Ebook “Lead With Your Ethics: A Framework for Ethical Decision Making in Business.” This resource is designed to introduce you to the fundamentals of ethics and the ways that you can apply an ethical lens to your decision making processes. Throughout the book, you’ll find additional resources and commentary to enhance your learning and expand your perspective as well.
