International Business Ethics Case Studies
A Student-Faculty Collaboration
Notre Dame Mendoza College of Business and the Initiative for Global Development present a case collection
Six fictionalized case studies, based on real-world events and designed to be used in business courses, are now available. They allow for stakeholder analysis, application of ethical decision frameworks, and consideration of practical implications of business decision making. The cases were written collaboratively by Mendoza College of Business undergraduate students, with a teaching professor of management and a former UN administrator specializing in ethics and international concerns. Cases are designed to be an alternative to traditional business cases that are often costly, prohibitively lengthy and/or too specialized for some faculty’s use.
Two to five pages long and with topics selected by the student co-authors, they are designed to feature protagonists that feel accessible to students studying business. They are free to faculty when used with attribution, and are designed to incorporate multidisciplinary, international, and triple-bottom-line issues. Though they incorporate international contexts, as cases co-authored by our students, the cases are written from the perspective of U.S. managers. While the protagonists are American, we hope the cases can be useful broadly. Brief teaching notes are also available by request.
