Abstract

This paper analyzes how business schools in Korea address the topics of business ethics in their curriculum and compare that with business schools in the U.S. We find that business ethics is not in the core curriculum in most of business schools in Korea whereas majority of business schools in the U.S. require students to take a stand-alone ethics course at both undergraduate and MBA level. Ethical business practice has become imperative to the long-term success and sustainability of a company in today’s business environment. We suggest that business schools in Korea make a curriculum change to include ethics education as mandated in the AACSB standards and entire community be involved with the university research, sponsoring lectures and highlighting acts of good business ethics.
