BUSINESS ETHICS: Portfolio

Navigation page Structure of My Portfolio
My Portfolio structured in such a way that each chapter starts with a particular concept on Business ethics which is followed by a particular piece of evidence in the form of case study, picture, video ,news article and so on. After reading the concepts and cases, the chapter ends with a reflection and critical analysis and is written under the heading my observation and summary. Since my report contains a number of cases based on the business ethics concepts, I would like to call my work with a title: “Concept and Cases”.
