BE439-6-AU Co Business Ethics


For this assignment, which constitutes 40% of the module mark, we ask you to write a 2,000 word essay (+/- 10%, not including reference list). With reference to Critchley’s article and to other theories and concepts covered on the module, please analyse how one of the following ethical phenomena shapes the ethical behaviour and experience of those involved.

Policies on discrimination based on race, gender, or sexuality

Policies on privacy and/or surveillance

Ethics codes

Whistle blowing

Consumer activism

How does the phenomenon shape ethical behaviour? What demands does it make of us as moral actors? 

Your essay may be more of a theoretical exploration, engaging intensively with business ethics theories in the academic literature, or it may be more of a case-based exploration, exploring one or two particular cases in more depth. In either case, however, you are expected to both, a) reference theories from academic sources, and, b) refer to some concrete real-life examples as well (as reported in the media, for example, or through publically available company documents or government reports).

The following are some examples of academic offences and do not constitute an exhaustive list: 

a. plagiarism, that is, using or copying the work of others (whether written, printed or in any other form) without proper acknowledgement in any assignment, examination or other assessed work; 

b. self-plagiarism, that is, using or copying one’s own work that has previously been submitted for assessment, at the University or elsewhere, without proper acknowledgement in any assignment, examination or other assessed work, unless this is explicitly permitted; 

c. false authorship or contract cheating, that is the soliciting of a third party to provide written material that is then submitted for assessment presented as one’s own original work; 

d. collusion, that is, submitting work produced collaboratively for individual assessment, unless this is explicitly permitted and acknowledged; 

e. falsifying data or evidence; 

f. unethical academic practice, for example, conducting research without obtaining ethical approval from the University where such approval is required, or the unauthorised use of information that has been confidentially acquired; 

g. introducing, or attempting to introduce, any written, printed or electronically accessible information into an examination, other than material explicitly permitted in the instructions for that examination; 

h. copying, or attempting to copy, the work of another candidate in an examination; 

i. communicating, or attempting to communicate, with another person, other than an invigilator, during an examination;

j. accessing, or attempting to access, the assessment material (such as an examination paper) prior to it being published, except in cases.
