Opening business students eyes: Embedding ethics through service learning

Baden, Denise (2011) Opening business students eyes: Embedding ethics through service learning At 22nd Annual Meeting of the International Association for Business and Society (IABS) "Modern Slavery? Well Being in the 21st Century Workplace", United Kingdom. 23 - 26 Jun 2011. 12 pp.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)

Abstract

The main contention of this paper is that the underlying aim behind efforts to integrate ethics into the business school curriculum is in order to motivate and enable future business leaders to manage ethically and respond effectively to the challenges of sustainable development. Conceptualising ethics education in terms of eliciting behavioural change enables access into the insights provided by social psychological research into factors affecting behaviour, such as self-efficacy, subjective norms, knowledge, awareness, attitudes and role models. MSc students studying entrepreneurship applied their entrepreneurial skills to help social enterprises achieve their objectives as part of their assessed coursework. With reference to a content analysis of their reflections, it is argued that such placements address these key factors identified as predicting behavioural change in a way that more traditional pedagogies cannot.
