An increasing number of articles in the popular press point to an increasing number of lapses in ethical judgment in terms of computer and information development and use; many of these lapses are caused by managers who were business or even management information system majors. One way to address this increase in ethical lapses is to ensure that majors in management information systems understand these ethical issues and the rewards that can come from being ethical in their business practices. This paper details several assignments and in-class discussions that have been used in the MIS Strategy class at a large, research-oriented university in an attempt to address these issues.
