The purpose of this study is to examine the prevalence of ethics content in strategic management textbooks. The importance of ethical behavior within organizations has been highlighted in the past by organizations, such as Enron and WorldCom, and more recently by British Petroleum and Toyota. The data collected from two different editions of five strategic management texts suggest that ethical content coverage has improved greatly over the past eight years. Implications for both authors and instructors are discussed.
