Two winning essays in a national business ethics student essay competition, run by the Institute of Business Ethics (IBE) in conjunction with the UK chapter of the European Business Ethics Network (EBEN-UK), came from Royal Holloway this year.

Winner in the postgraduate category was Charlotte Durant for her paper 'What are the advantages and disadvantages of codes of conduct in regulating moral behaviour in business?' Joint runner-up in the postgraduate category was Charles Warlow with an essay 'To what extent can virtue ethics be applied to business? Discuss with reference to the Aristotelian koinonia of employer-employee business relations as practised by the John Lewis Partnership.'

Both were students on the MSc Sustainability and Management last year. The prizes were awarded in front of an audience of business leaders and academics by Tim Melville-Ross, chairman of DTZ.

Mr Melville-Ross commented:

"With trust in business leaders at an all time low, it is more important than ever that, as the business leaders of tomorrow, today's graduates possess ethical sensitivity."
