This article examines how the mission of business ethics has fostered several methodological approaches, which were chiefly drawn from philosophical analysis and descriptive methodologies. It discusses the focus on individual managerial decision making and the tension between methods within business ethics education. It evaluates the work of leading business ethics scholars and suggests that this field is both limited and intellectually ambitious.
