Discussion Topic: Policies and Organizational Culture
In preparation for this week’s Discussion, your ethical principles will be tested with a short case study where Duke’s Fuqua School of Business was under scrutiny in the manner it addressed the ten percent of MBA Program learners of cheating on a take home test. Another college from New Jersey had a similar incident with its Chinese-based MBA Program learners for plagiarism. Read the Test Your Principles, Exhibit 12.3, page 361, article in your text and respond to the following questions:
- If you were asked to serve as an Ethics Review Arbitrator, what decision would you have rendered in support of the Duke University MBA Program learners’ issue? The Centenary College Chinese MBA Program?
- In support of your ruling as Ethics Review Arbitrator, explain your key reasons for your decision.
Discussion Topic: Corporate Entrepreneurship
Please refer to Exhibit 14.7, Who Is The Entrepreneur? In your text, the top right-hand quadrant defines an entrepreneur as being one who has high creativity and innovativeness but not necessarily high management skills and business know-how (Pearce & Robinson, 2013, p. 414).
- What is intrapreneurship and how is it best enabled?
Spend some time to review the responses of your fellow learners and provide feedback and challenge them. Cite your sources in APA format.
