Overview

BUSINESS: ITS LEGAL, ETHICAL, AND GLOBAL ENVIRONMENT helps students learn to think analytically about legal and ethical issues. As students explore the intersection of law, business strategy, and ethics, they apply concepts to more than 200 real-world situations. This approach heightens students' own sense of morality and illustrates how law and ethics issues affect the workplace. The eleventh edition meets all AACSB curricular and accrediting standards, making it an excellent resource for future business managers. To complement this edition, MindTap® is available online to help engage students in an interactive learning experience.
