Module 1 - SLP
Business Ethics and Deontology
In the Module 1 SLP, you will be given requirements for structuring the papers you will write throughout your degree program. In this module, we will discuss the required format and and writing requirements of all future papers (Case and SLP). Required Reading
To begin, please review pages 1-11 of the Trident University International Student Guide to Writing a High-Quality Academic Paper. Then read page 16 of the Student Guide to Writing a High-Quality Academic Paper, entitled “Basic Structure: 4. Conclusion.” Please note: For Module 1, you should disregard pages 12-15, as we will be covering end referencing and in-text citation requirements in Module 2. In addition to reviewing the Student Guide to Writing a High-Quality Academic Paper, I would like you to review Dr. Drummond McNaughton's excellent guide for writing high-quality papers: Dr. Drumm's Writing Tips. Please thoroughly review the Purdue Owl guidelines for writing papers. This websites provides a high-quality overview relating to such issues as writing mechanics and usage of grammar: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/section/1/
For the Module 1 SLP, please write a 2- to 3-page paper in which you address the following: Drawing upon deontological ethics, discuss a business ethics problem with which you have had personal experience. Keys to the Assignment
Describe an ethical problem you have confronted in a business situation; Describe the deontological implications of the ethical problem you have described; and Describe how Kant's Categorical Imperative applies to your chosen business problem. SLP Assignment Expectations

References: : Does the paper demonstrate that the student has read, understood and can apply the background materials for the module? If required, has the student demonstrated effective research, as evidenced by student’s use of relevant and quality (library?) sources? Do additional sources used in paper provide strong support for conclusions drawn, and do they help in shaping the overall paper?
Citing Sources: Does the student demonstrate understanding of APA Style of referencing, by inclusion of proper end references and in-text citations (for paraphrased text and direct quotations) as appropriate? Have all sources (e.g., references used from the Background page, the assignment readings, and outside research) been included, and are these properly cited? Have all end references been included within the body of the paper as in-text citations?
Tips and Suggestions
1. Your SLP will be graded on your ability to accurately state the deontological implications of the business ethics problem you have identified, and to what extent the resolution of the problem is consistent with deontological ethics. *** Remember that there are no right or wrong answers here - as you will learn, deontology is not the only way to view a business ethics problem, but you must use sound logic in your assessment of the problem.
2. Your SLP will be graded on the extent to which you adhere to the TUI Student Guide to Writing a High-Quality Academic Paper guidelines. Please be sure that your paper is formatted properly, and that you follow all guidelines (e.g., appropriate use of headings, margins, Times New Roman 12 pt. font, double-spacing, etc.).
