A Wall Street Journal article titled, “Does an A in Ethics Have Any Value?” discussed business schools’ efforts to stem the tide of fraud. Many different approaches to ethics training were discussed.
The article primarily focused on “how” to teach ethics, debating issues like whether a specific ethics curriculum is better than integrating some ethics into all courses. What was lacking was a discussion on “what” moral imperatives should be taught.
Moses introduced the first code of ethics in Deuteronomy 5. We read, “Moses summoned all Israel and said: Hear, O Israel, the decrees and laws I declare in your hearing today. Learn them and be sure to follow them.”
We will always have greed and corruption, but lasting ethics training needs to be anchored in teaching God’s Law.
