This article will propose a form of critical business ethics education that will generate Global Age Cosmopolitanism (gac), which is aimed mostly at the propagation of economic justice. Because business practices have the propensity to generate both positive and negative outcomes, a careful review of the social compromises that may underlie gac is necessary. It is important to assert that, “the gac ethic is a cosmopolitan perspective that presupposes civic universalism” (Rivera ). I will identify the key components of the proposed critical business ethics education and will indicate how these differ from standard business ethics education. I will also demonstrate how the proposed form of business ethics education is tied to gac.

It is the purpose of this article to consider how business ethics educators and curricula should incorporate proactive approaches to economic justice and strive to avoid the reactive nature of past business ethics literature, the primary goal of which has been to repair unethical business behavior.
