BUSINESS ETHICS IMT-BS

PRESENTATION

(module 1)

The crisis of the Boeing 737-MAX has once again shown that ethical dilemmas refuse to go away. How could engineers’ managers let planes keep on flying after the Lion Air Crash? Ever since the ENRON crisis, it has been stressed out that business ethics are necessary. Still, mortgages were sold, when they shouldn’t have been, and more crisis ensued.
