Corporate Governance and Business Ethics


Corporate Governance is a relatively recent concept. Two decades ago, the term Corporate Governance meant little to all, but a handful of scholars and shareholders. Today, it is a mainstream concern – a staple of discussion in corporate boardrooms, academic roundtables, and policy think tanks worldwide. Over the past decade, the concept has evolved to address the rise of Corporate Social Responsibility (CRS) and the more active participation of both shareholders and stakeholders in corporate decision making. Business ethics deals with ethical rules and principles necessary for a successful business. It explains the various moral or ethical problems that can arise in a business setting and the responsibilities of persons who are engaged in an organization. It provides us with perspectives about what is right or wrong. Ethics can be reasonably seen as an intangible, yet powerful, catalyst and supporter of compliance.
