Business Ethics my completed Individual Assignments (Solving ethical cases using well known ethical theories and intuition)

Wednesday, October 20th, 2010

As a student in Arhnem Business School (ABS), I’m currently following the Business Ethics module.
This university subject’s purpose is to make the student aware of the different ethical / philosophical approaches one can partake in solving Business cases.
As part of my studies I’ve been assigned so far 4 individual assignments that I have to solve according to general ethical theories out there.

I’ve decided to share my solved cases as well as the case assignments. I hope this assignments will be helpful to other Arnhem Business School students which are also following the Business Ethics study module and provide the student with some samples on how they can write their individual assignments.
The student should be aware that actually my assignments are not graded with high grades most of them were graded with 7.5 and below so please don’t try to copycat them but just use them as a samples.

Here are the case assignments texts as well as my perspective on solving them using the various ethical theories like Kantian’s Categorical Imperative, Utilitarianism, Utilitarianism according to Mill, Virtue ethics (Aristotles, Socrates ..), Care ethics etc.

Here are the links to the files:

1. Solved Assignment 1 – Individual Case 1: “Extraction of natural gas
2. Assignment 2 – Case assignment text , Solved Assignment 2 – Individual Case 2: “Fire Detectors”
3. Assignment 3 – Individual Case 3: “The Human Resources Specialist”
4. Assignment 3 – Case assignment text , Solved Assignment 4 – Individual Case: “The Lost Coupon”
Apart from this individual assignments I and a couple of other guys were supposed to work on a common group project that deals with the recent Deepwater Horizon oil spill catastrophe and evaluate on that from Business Ethics perspective.
As soon as the Project is graded by the Business Ethics teachers I’ll share this here on the blog as well.
