Some individuals who are engaged in international business transactions have reported a cultural component to ethics. You are working on opening a branch of a food distribution operation in a foreign country, and a local official suggests that a little cash would help your company get started.

Research international business and ethical standards, and answer the following questions:

  • In what ways can culture affect ethical standards and shape business behavior?
  • Is it ethical to take part in corrupt international business transactions? Legal? Explain.

Post a new topic to the Discussion Board that contains your answers to the above questions. List any sources used in APA format. Also, respond to two other students’ posts on the Discussion Board and explain to whether you agree or disagree with their responses.

Your submitted assignment (60 points) should include the following:


  • Your Discussion Board topic containing your responses to the two questions (40 points)
  • Your responses to two other students’ Discussion Board posts (60 points)
