Request Description

 

Note: Please be sure that you have completed the Module 1 SLP in full prior to beginning any work on the Module 1 Case.

 

In the Module 1 Case, you will be writing a paper that uses deontological ethics in the critical evaluation of a business problem.

 

Required:

 

Read the following case from Santa Clara University’s Markkula Center for Applies Ethics:

Using the resources in the Background Information section (you may use as many as you need), write a 5-7 page paper, critically responding to the following:

 

Step 1) What are the ethical problems raised in the WorldCom case?

 

Step 2) Using Steps 1-4 in the following decision-making model in your evaluation of the WorldCom case, critically evaluate WorldCom’s ethical problemsusing the deontological framework.

Step 3) Assess WorldCom’s ethics from Immanuel Kant’s point of view – specifically, using Kant’s Categorical Imperative.

 

Optional:

 

The following ProQuest article may be useful in your assessment of WorldCom:

 

M MScharff. (2005). WorldCom: A Failure of Moral and Ethical Values. Journal of Applied Management and Entrepreneurship,10(3), 35-47. Retrieved July 27, 2011, from http://proquest.umi.com/pqdweb?index=15&did=1176439141&SrchMode=3&sid=1&Fmt=4&VInst=PROD&VType=PQD&RQT=309&VName=PQD&TS=1311793787&clientId=29440&aid=1

 

These links may be helpful as well. First, here is a discussion of rights: http://www.scu.edu/ethics/practicing/decision/rights.html

 

Secondly, and related to the foregoing discussion of rights, the Rights Test (based on one's duty - and respect of others' rights) may help you to frame your analysis: http://ethicsops.com/RightsTest.aspx

 

Expectations:

 

Please note the following expectations closely, as your Case will be graded using them:

 

1) When writing your Case, be sure that you use the TUI Well-Written Paperguidelines provided you in the SLP – i.e., cover page, formatting, etc.

 

2) Be sure that your paper contains 5-7 pages of discussion and analysis. Note that the 5-7 page minimum length requirement does not include your cover page and references.

 

3) For the Module 1 Case, be sure that you cite all of the sources (Background Information section of this module and external references) that you use in your essay. To this extent, do your best to properly cite any sources you may use (using APA style if you can). However, you will not be penalized here for inaccurate sourcing and referencing, as we will be covering proper citation and referencing in the next module.

 

4) You are required to analyze the Case. This entails that you not simply recount the facts contained within the above articles, but that you perform a critical analysis of the WorldCom case using deontological ethics and Kant's Categorical Imperative as a framework.
