Corruption at the University: The Case of Susanne Boyle
by David Jancsics & David Kanaan / published on 1 December 2021
Abstract: The case study provides participants a rich narrative about corruption-related ethical dilemmas in a large public organization operating within a multifaceted social, economic and legal environment. Participants are put in the position of a fictive character, Susanne Boyle, Director of the Office of Institutional Compliance, Ethics, and Equity, who must consider immediate action to manage three corruption-related issues but also consider how policies should be changed in order to avoid similar problems in the future. The case study intends to demonstrate the challenges with ethical decision-making within complex social systems and not purely rational bureaucratic arrangements. Similar to many real-life organizational situations, Susanne Boyle is personally and emotionally involved and must navigate between clashing moralities, norms and values related to her informal social network, as well as her official duties and responsibilities.
