Business Ethics: The Next Frontier For Globalizing Indian Companies
Nowhere is the fast changing nature of the global business landscape more perceptible than on the ethics front.

Legal and regulatory frameworks in these countries have been swift to respond through stringent laws such as the Sarbanes Oxley Corporate Reform Act. Consequently, most businesses based in these countries have become extremely risk averse on the ethics front. Business ethics encompasses much more than mere compliance with laws and regulations.
