In this set of six cases, students are placed into the role of the fictional Andrea Johnson, a recent graduate who has just begun her career at  a mid-sized organization in the consumer electronics industry. While in the role of Andrea, university students and early-stage professionals follow Andrea’s career development and are exposed to a variety of ethical challenges she encounters along the way. Each hypothetical scenario is based on real-world events and will illustrate the types of situations that students may encounter in the course of their career.

The cases may be taught sequentially or as standalone scenarios. Case A is delivered in the inspection copy and purchased copy, and Cases B – F are delivered alongside the teaching note. A slide deck accompanies the comprehensive teaching note that provides an in-depth analysis of each scenario with tips on promoting student engagement to create an active and dynamic learning environment. The intent of the case series is to enable students to develop fundamental tools for how to recognize, address, and successfully overcome compromising situations.

Teaching Objectives

After reading and discussing the material, students should:

  • Be able to classify and distinguish between the different types of ethical transgressions that professionals face in all industries on a regular basis
  • Learn approaches that can help them address ethical transgression risks of virtually all types
  • Be able to apply the concepts in a variety of real-world situations, to achieve a successful outcome and help them ensure they will do the right things and maintain their reputation for strong integrity.
