Germán Scalzo, Sara Elvira Galbán-Lozano, Claudia Fabiola Ortega-Barba

Resumen


Resumen: Este trabajo de corte cualitativo tiene como objetivo mostrar los significados y experiencias de estudiantes de las áreas de ciencias económicas y empresariales en torno a la ética profesional, la cual por su misma naturaleza, no tiene como fin el mero conocimiento sino su aplicación práctica, en donde actúan los aprendizajes internalizados, como modelos para la acción. Dentro de los hallazgos más significativos se encontró que los estudiantes valoran la formación ética que les ofrece la universidad como complemento de su formación técnica, sin embargo, consideran necesario el uso de estrategias innovadoras para su enseñanza. Los significados que muestran sobre la ética van desde lo personal hasta lo profesional pasando por lo social, resaltando el carácter relacional de la misma.

Abstract: This qualitative research aims to present the significance and experiences that economics and business students report to have acquired in professional ethics classes at the university level. Professional ethics, by nature, is both theoretical and practical, which means that the theory that students learn must be applied to real situations. In this sense, what students learn serves as a paradigm for action. Among the most significant findings herein was that students value the ethical training offered by the university as a complement to their technical training, however, they consider innovative strategies in teaching fundamental to their classroom experience. Students share that the significance they acquire about ethics ranges from the personal to the professional and the social, highlighting the eminently relational nature of this subject.
