CHOICE Review

This book traces the five-year development of the Leadership, Ethics and Corporate Responsibility Program at Harvard Business School. The authors, who were directly involved in research and decision making, present an excellent road map of the planning and implementation process. The initial purpose of the program is discussed showing emphasis on identifying attributes needed by future business leaders and creating educational experiences to develop those attributes. The book also addresses the appropriateness of teaching ethics to graduate students whose values have presumably already been developed. Findings are presented of a study conducted by a Harvard Business School researcher to better understand "who" graduate students are. The role of the faculty is discussed in the "Barriers Report," which analyzed 14 roadblocks perceived by faculty as they integrate ethical discussions into first-year MBA curriculum. The extensive preparations to involve faculty in this project are described, ranging from training seminars to assistance in developing case studies. The Epilogue focuses on the initial success of the program and the challenges involved in sustaining and developing it. A useful book for educators and corporate leaders who hire these graduates.
