  Abstract:  After a few decades of obvious interest of companies to assuring ethics courses to their own employees, now we assist to a dramatic diminution as concerns the opportunities in this sense. Therefore, universities must represent a kind of fortress in offering ethics courses. During 1995, over 50% of U.S. corporations have ensured ethics courses to their employees. Although many studies pointed out that the ethics training do not guarantee an ethical conduct of professionals, the world-wide universities have considered professional ethics as part of their curricula. Especially three domains require the ethical conduct as a primordial one, according the research; unfortunately, they are the professional domains that mostly reveal cases of unethical conduct: medicine, business, and education.

Keywords: ethics, unethical conduct, medicine, business ethics, professional ethics
