Why Ethics Matter

Professors Fontrodona, Argandoña and Vaccaro on ethics-driven decisionmaking

11/04/2012

Every decision we take in life marks either our improvement or our deterioration, says Prof. Antonio Argandoña of IESE's Department of Business Ethics. Business ethics helps company leaders by giving them useful criteria for making decisions that go beyond economic factors.

Professors Joan Fontrodona and Antonino Vaccaro, also of the department, discuss how business problems should be analyzed from a broad perspective, taking into account principles and values, to achieve long-term improvement and growth.
