Ethical Aspects of Management in Theory and Practice

Freie Universität Berlin
Department of Economics and Business Administration
11th - 13th May 2006




The Freie Universität Berlin (Department of Economics and Business Administration) will host a conference on the relationship between economics, business economics or management studies, on the one hand, and ethics, on the other, with a focus on the ethical responsibilities arising from economic activity. The conference's focus will be on management practice, in particular on the ability of theories to contribute to problem specifications and solutions, on the one hand, and to management education, on the other.

Call for papers

We would like to encourage discourse of different perspectives on the issues in order to improve our understanding of the multifaceted relations between ethics, business economics and management practice. In particular we encourage contributions in the following fields:

• Empirical studies documenting ethical antecedents or ethical conflicts in managerial practice.
• Theoretical work contributing insights into the interaction between ethical standards and business success.
• Contributions from an educational and teaching perspective
leading to an improvement of management education.
