NBA 671 Business Ethics Fall 2007 FINAL PROJECT Date due: Thursday, December 6, in Sage 304 (the Faculty Support office), by 1:00 pm. Length: 7-8 pages, double-spaced, normal margins. Topic: Select a problematic (or even controversial) choice situation , in which a business decision-maker (a company, a management team, or a single executive) faces a decision that entails making a moral choice. Assume that the decision-maker wants to make a choice that is both a good business decision and ethically justified. This assignment, then, calls for you to provide an analysis of the choice situation and to recommend a course of action that is economically and ethically sound.

My interest is in the reasoning process leading to a decision, so consider only facts that would have been available to the decision-maker(s) at the time of the decision.
