PROVO — The U.S. special forces are getting help from two Brigham Young University professors to deal with critical ethical dilemmas.
The professors teach business ethics, and they never dreamed they would be called upon to help with top military operations.
“The military plays a very special place in my heart,” said Brad Agle, who’s been teaching business ethics and leadership at BYU’s Marriott School of Business for 32 years. His father was in the Navy, so he said he grew up as a military brat.
“Being able to work on this was an incredible honor,” said Aaron Miller, who has been teaching business ethics at BYU for 15 years. “The reality is ethics is a set of skills. It’s something you have to get better at with practice.”
Several years ago the two professors wrote a book called “The Business Ethics Field Guide” — a guide that breaks down common ethical dilemmas into 13 categories. Never did they think a top military official would come across this book and want to adapt it for U.S. special forces.
