About The Solution

Overview

Demonstrate for your students the importance of business ethics, sustainability, and stakeholder management from a strong managerial perspective with Carroll/Buchholtz's BUSINESS AND SOCIETY: ETHICS, SUSTAINABILITY, AND STAKEHOLDER MANAGEMENT, Ninth Edition. Students learn how effective business decision makers balance and protect the interests of various stakeholders, including investors, employees, the community, and the environment--particularly as business recovers from a perilous financial period. Proven content emphasizes the social, legal, political, and ethical responsibilities of a business to both external and internal stakeholder groups. The authors effectively balance strong coverage of ethics and the stakeholder model with a new focus on one of business's most recent, urgent mandates: sustainability. This edition's increased emphasis on sustainability clearly reflects the interconnectivity between business and the natural, social, and financial environments, illustrating how all three must be maintained in balance to sustain current and future generations. A wealth of new real business cases and "Ethics in Practice" cases blend with coverage of the most recent research, laws, and examples. Practical applications teach future managers to focus their reasoning and enhance the precision with which they consider and make ethical decisions. With this edition's comprehensive package, including a Test Bank correlated to AACSB standards, dynamic new website, and other resources, you can provide your students with the solid understanding of ethics, sustainability, and stakeholder management.
