Business schools around the globe are seeking effective ways of incorporating business ethics into their programs (Melé 2008, Swanson 2004). Indications from both the market and accrediting bodies suggest best-practice programs will include ethics education. However, the debate continues as to whether meaningful learning is best achieved through stand-alone ethics experiences or via an integrated theme across the program of study (Tesfayohannes & Driscoll 2010, Wilhelm 2005). While many examples of required ethics-experiences can be found, to date, there is only one business school that we are aware of that has implemented a required full-term post-graduate ethics course based on the Giving Voice To Values (GVV) (Gentile 2008) philosophy and content. The purpose of this article is to share the tacit knowledge gained in the authors' experience of implementing such a course at the University of Western Australia's Business School.
