MBA (On-line) – Emphasising the Environment – Assignment 3


The Institute of Business Ethics (ibe.org.uk) state that business ethics is relevant both to the conduct of individuals and to the conduct of the organisation as a whole.  Ethics goes beyond the legal requirements for a company and covers discretionary decisions and behaviours guided by values.  The Institute goes on to query the difference between ethics, corporate responsibility and sustainability.

A useful checklist of relevance to sustainable business practices is available on the website of the International Institute for Sustainable Development (iisd.org)

Assignment Brief: (Reflective Report -  25% of modular assessments) – 750 words

Drawing on the two topics of business ethics and sustainable practice prepare a reflective report which incorporates a critical analysis and evaluation of business experiences drawing on relevant theory and research evidence.  The report should incorporate examples from business.

Guidance Notes:

The essence of this assignment is effective selection and in-line with the two main elements, your structure should reflect this.  There are many examples of ethical behaviour in the media and as case studies in academic texts and journal articles.  Choosing examples that are of interest to your own specialism or sector will maximise the benefits of your study.  In terms of word count, one example for each section is probably sufficient, with a maximum of two.  The example should be summarised briefly.  The expectation is that the contents would then progress to draw on theory that you have selected and researched, it is helpful to define any terms you may use and illustrate any theoretical models as this gives your work the authentic foundation expected at post-graduate level.  As in previous assignments a brief introduction and summary should be incorporated.  In the summary is you have a specific recommendation this should be included – for example this could be ethical training, or the appointment of a sustainable business champion.
