Ethics is that branch of philosophy dealing with values relating to human conduct, on the rightness and wrongness of certain actions and the goodness and badness of the motives and ends of such actions. It is defined precisely as a person’s situation-dependent application of moral standards, which stem from the traditions, values or beliefs that have grown in societies concerning right and wrong conduct (Müller, Turner, Andersen, Jingting, & Kvalnes, 2014).
Business ethics is a form of applied ethics that examines ethical principles and moral or ethical problems that arise in the business environment. It applies to all aspects of business conduct and is relevant to the conduct of individuals and business organizations. It’s part of Applied Ethics, a field of ethics that deals with ethical questions in many areas such as medical, technical, legal and business. The range and quantity of business ethical issues reflects the degree to which business is perceived to be at odds with non-economic social values (Alzola, 2015; Enderle, 2015; Müller et al., 2014; Vranceanu, 2014).
