Why study Business Management with Business Ethics?

In addition, there have been many news stories of corporate, banking and motor industry misbehaviour and situations where the actions of companies have resulted in severe environmental damage.

Businesses need managers who understand the many factors that create ethical pressures, and how to deal with them in ways that meet the needs of everyone.
