  Legal and ethical concerns play an increasingly important role in business. Law and ethics establish the framework within which business operates and they touch every aspect of managerial decision-making. Law and ethics support, facilitate, and regulate business practice in all functional areas.  MBA students who will play a future leadership role in business must have a general understanding of law and ethics as these disciplines relate to business, as well as a specific understanding of their impact on the function MBA students will enter upon graduation.
  MBAs
