DB570 Global Business Ethics



Within the Discussion, the student is required to post a thread in response to the provided prompt for each discussion.  Please remember to write these discussions like mini-papers.  Use subheadings that are in APA (don’t put the questions).  Have in text citations and a reference page at the end.  Paragraphs should be well-developed.  Avoid using the word “it ‘because “it” is vague.  Avoid direct quotes unless they are famous quotes.  Show what you’ve learned by analyzing the information.  Paraphrase your work.  Paraphrasing means to read the material until you know what you’ve read.  Then put the reading aside and write about this.  Still reference paraphrased work.  Follow these same guidelines for the press release and the email.



Initial Thread

The purpose of the Discussions is to examine the ethical values displayed in various organizations, and view such in light of Scripture, the course text, and scholarly research. For each Discussion thread, write a 375–450-word thread that presents an analysis of the assigned case study from Hess & Cameron. Your thread will not summarize the article; instead, it will analyze that company’s values approach in light of Biblical truths and outside research. Support your assertions with at least 3 scholarly resources that have been published within the last 3 years, in addition to, a course text, and Scripture. Your thread must be in current APA format and must include a reference list. Please copy and paste your thread into the Discussion (you may attach a copy to retain formatting – if needed). No title page or abstract are needed.
