Abstract

The current paper exposes critical notes on the doctoral thesis "The impact of adopting ethics and compliance programs on business strategy" elaborated by Valeriu Deciu, „Al. I. Cuza” University of Iasi, Romania. Based on the thesis analysis I found that it corresponds to the requirements of the elaboration of a doctoral thesis in the field and I agreed with its public defence. The PhD student pursues a transdisciplinary approach, having as a central point the field of ethics management, approaching the theories and instruments from the area of management but also from that of applied ethics and sociology. The research is exploratory in nature, being approached a relatively new field for the literature in the area of ethics management in our country, a field that is also a novelty for the Romanian managerial practice itself. The paper also has a confirmatory side, the statistical processing of the data obtained through a survey based on a questionnaire leading to the confirmation of hypotheses formulated by the doctoral student throughout the paper.
