Ethics in business management is receiving considerable attention recently with the uncovering of serious fraudulent actions by major U. S. and European companies and their executives. As might be expected, the subject is being given greater emphasis in business management learning programs. Business schools especially have been stepping up their efforts to bring a greater ethics focus into their MBA and executive education programs. For example, Harvard Business School has introduced a core course for all students in value-based leadership. In another related developing management education area, there has been an increasing interest in using the arts, especially the dramatic arts, to help enhance developing management skills.
Catholic universities and business schools have embedded in their mission statements an emphasis on integrity, honesty, and ethical behavior, and therefore have a responsibility to transfer these values to their students. This paper explores different ways in which the dramatic arts have and can be used to further developing management skills involving ethical action. This novel approach to teaching management seems to fit nicely into a Catholic-oriented educational system and could greatly contribute in instilling the above mentioned Catholic values in the students.
