The field of ethics continues to gain widespread recognition as a core discipline of business, alongside disciplines such finance, marketing, accounting, organizational behavior, strategy, communications and operations.

Many scholars currently teaching business ethics, however, have limited academic experience in the scholarly discipline of the field. The demand for business ethics educators is currently greater than the supply of educators trained in the field.

As schools attempt to integrate ethics into their curricula, deans are tasking scholars from other areas to teach business ethics. This Initiative allows seasoned ethics educators to continue their professional development and empowers newcomers to become effective teachers in the classroom.
