More About the Author

Laura Hartman is Vincent de Paul Professor of Business Ethics and Legal Studies in DePaul University's College of Commerce, where she has received the university's Excellence in Teaching Award, the college's Outstanding Service Award and numerous university competitive research grants. She also serves as Research Director of DePaul's Institute for Business and Professional Ethics.

Currently, she represents DePaul University on the Global Projects Committee of the Worldwide Vincentian Family, a committee responsible for hands-on design and implementation of a micro-development, finance and education system for the poor of Haiti. She was named to that effort after recently returning to the faculty, having served for a number of years as Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs for the university.

She has been invited to serve as the Gourlay Professor at the Melbourne Business School/Trinity College at the University of Melbourne (2007-2008), an invited professor at INSEAD (France), HEC (France), the Universite Paul Cezanne Aix Marseille III, and at the Grenoble Graduate School of Business, among other European universities. On behalf of the accrediting body for schools of business, AACSB, Hartman is the global coordinator of the regular, bi-annual seminar series, "Teaching Business Ethics."

As a globally recognized scholar, educator, trainer, service-provider and advisor, Hartman has consulted, guided and taught at multinational for-profits, non-profits and educational institutions in the field of business ethics on issues related to corporate governance, responsibility and culture, the employment relationship, global labor conditions and standards, the impact of technology on employment relationships, and, her particular expertise, the alleviation of global poverty through profitable corporate partnerships.

Hartman's practical experience spans over 20 years in both consulting and academia as it relates to legal and corporate risk management, vulnerability assessment, and business ethics. Given the current economic conditions, her expertise is vital and timely in advising corporate executives and the professional community on actions necessary to enhance ethical leadership, to mitigate corporate risks (legal, fraud, financial), to implement a sustainable corporate governance framework, to provide appropriate and effective business ethics training to employees (to meet mandatory legal requirements and to moderate key risks), and to generate morale under exigent circumstances.

Hartman has published over 80 books, cases and articles in, among other journals, Business Ethics Quarterly, Business & Society Review, Business Ethics: A European Review, and the Journal of Business Ethics. Her research and consulting efforts have also garnered national media attention by publications such as Fortune Small Business where she was named one of the "Top 10 Minds for Small Business," as well as the Wall Street Journal, BusinessWeek, and the New York Times.

In her professional role working with corporations and other institutions, Hartman has engaged in ethics training workshops and presentations for a number of local and global companies and professional associations at the employee, executive and board levels. In particular, she has worked with firms in industries such as regulated utilities (Nicor, Exelon), healthcare (Blue Cross Blue Shield, Abbott), financial services (Chicago Mercantile Exchange, Fiserv, Investment Management Consultants Association), education operations (University of Texas System, Roosevelt University) and retail/manufacturing (Kerry Foods, Nike). Her ability to design and to translate ethics training appropriate to each of these industries and staff levels is one of her noteworthy strengths. Hartman's efforts on behalf of her clients involve a comprehensive risk analysis of a firm's vulnerabilities from an ethics perspective, where necessary, followed by the development and delivery of programs in the following areas:

* Ethics training refresher and a train-the-trainer programs to be conducted for hundreds of stock traders, as mandated by the CFTC (Chicago Mercantile Exchange)
* Innovative, unique and cutting edge online training environments designed to be significantly engaging for the worker while challenging from an ethical perspective (throughout)
* Workshops for both internal and public auditors with regard to the development of effective oversight for both ethics and compliance operations, with regard to the revised Federal Sentencing Guidelines, in particular (Univ. of Texas System, PricewaterhouseCoopers)
* Full day highly-tailored, firm-specific new employee orientation and current employee ethics training modules (Kerry Foods, Fiserv)
* Customized leadership development workshops on ethical decision-making (OfficeMax, Exelon)
* Presentations and board training sessions on ethics, ethical decision-making and corporate governance at the employee, management and board levels (Blue Cross, ComEd, IMCA)

Hartman graduated magna cum laude from Tufts University and received her law degree from the University of Chicago Law School.

Very helpful for my course I used it and liked it.
Eli Johns
Although I purchased the text book, it is my son who actually is using it for his business class on statistics.
Steve
The poor editing makes the book really hard to read trying to figure what the point is of the sentences.

This new edition sports new chapter readings and examples, but, unfortunately, these new additions have many typos and other signs of poor editing. Must have been rushed out to be ready for a new semester. ...Is it ethical to rush a textbook through the editing process, sacrificing utility and fitness for purpose, to make more money?

Used this textbook for a Spring 2007 Ethics class and the students loved it -- they told me it was very approachable and very readable. Now if only Laura would put together a Leadership and Ethics textbook...

I got this for use on my kindle touch and it does not work. Do not waste your money. Apparently $70 isn't enough to make a version that will work on all kindles. I'm very dissatisfied and will avoid books from this publisher in the future whenever possible.

Format: Paperback
The textbook is rambling and contains a crap ton of useless information. Some sentences are just flat out wrong and don't make any sense. There is almost no structure, so it's difficult to use it as a reference. Of course, people will keep buying it because crappy professors will keep requiring it.

I mean it. This book is worth reading even if you're not in b-school and not taking a class on ethics. It is well written, well structured and well integrated. I enjoyed the book so much that I kept it instead of selling it back. I also wrote the authors thank-you emails because it's rare to get an academic textbook that is worth the paper its printed on these days. (I should have thanked the editors in part- this book contained no errors in fact, errors in spelling or errors in grammar.)

This book did not seem to go along with my course and left me checking, many times, to see if it was actually the correct edition. I could have taken the course without this book. I took open book tests in which I never found one answer.

This book was required for my Business Ethics class. The book provided good information, but was a bit dated for 2013 use. The writing was what I would describe as a philosophical style, as it could have been written in a more easy to read style. There were also grammatical errors including missing words and the wrong word being used (i.e. “form” instead of “from”). The editing needs work. The information was repeated over and over, which is good in order to retain the information, but much of the text could have been condensed or removed.
