ABSTRACT
The author stresses the need for ethics to play a central role in business thinking. He mentions the belief of some British business schools that the behavior of leaders in the run-up to the economic meltdown in 2008 was influenced by the way they have been educated. He negates the notion that ethics and sustainability are soft skills modules. He encourages business schools to place as much emphasis on sustainable relationship management as on accounting and technical skills development.
