 In this new edition, the dynamic author team of Linda Trevino, prolific researcher and Distinguished Professor, and Kate Nelson, Professor and long time practitioner of strategic organizational communications and human resources, equip students with the pragmatic knowledge they need to identify and solve ethical dilemmas, understand their own and others' ethical behavior, and promote ethical behavior in their organization.  

 Managing Business Ethics is the perfect text for students entering the workplace, those seeking to become professionals in training, communications, compliance, in addition to chief ethics officers, corporate counsel, heads of human resources, and senior executives!
