Description: Business schools have been trying for decades to educate ethical managers, but have often fallen short of expectations. The difficulty for many schools may lie in barriers that prevent the inclusion of ethics into the graduate business program. This case study describes the development of an MBA program in a small Catholic college which emerged naturally infused with values. We propose that the barriers that often inhibit the creation of such a program can be overcome, if the program emerges from a value-laden culture. Results of this single case study are promising, finding that both faculty and students recognize the emphases placed on ethics two years later. The question for further research is whether this experience is unique to a single institution, or whether all faith-based institutions have an advantage when trying to integrate ethics into an MBA curriculum. If faith-based institutions truly have the edge in developing ethics-infused graduate business programs, they could have an important competitive advantage in the MBA market. [PUBLICATION ABSTRACT]
