Abstract

Tools and resources for raising ethical standards in online management courses are essential for maintaining integrity in management education. Perceived integrity of the educational institution, accrediting bodies, future employers, and students influence the value of a degree that students receive. The academic integrity in online education impacts each of these stakeholders as well as the ethics of the businesses employing graduates. A key role in promoting academic integrity in online courses is played by instructors in the design and conduct of their courses. Management education can teach business ethics by making it imperative that students continually practice being ethical while studying. Case studies, scenarios and simulations are often used to reveal insights and teach concepts. However, it is also essential to create an ethical climate in which students participate. “Train as you fight” is a popular army saying that is fitting for this concept. Students who consistently participate in and help to create ethical course climates may be more successful in the business sector in spreading and supporting an ethical climate there. Establishing best practices for creating ethical course climates becomes increasingly essential as online management education programs grow.
