Free Business Ethics Course Materials

Free Business Ethics Course Materials

By Justin Weinberg

A team of scholars at Georgetown University have developed a set of open-access resources for teaching and learning business ethics.

The package of materials, “Business Ethics in a Box” was created by Jason Brennan, William English, John Hasnas, and Peter Jaworski. It includes syllabi, lecture slides and notes, in-class activities, and more. The authors say their goal is to “revolutionize business ethics teaching by creating content that better suits the needs of today’s business students.”

The materials, they say, “have been developed, tested, and used routinely (much of it for over a decade) by the core ethics faculty at the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University.” They encourage people to use the materials, modify them if needed to better suit their purposes, and to contact them with any suggestions.

Business Ethics in a Box is a project of the Institute for the Study of Markets and Ethics at Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business, and is funded by a grant from the John Templeton Foundation. You can check it out here.
