    Wirtschafts- bzw. unternehmensethische Ansaetze versuchen, Betriebe oder Wirt-schaftssysteme auf organisationaler Ebene so zu strukturieren, dass ethisches wirt-schaftliches Handeln daraus resultiert. Voraussetzung dafuer sind jedoch bestimmte moralkognitive Strukturen auf individueller Ebene. Der Aufsatz zeigt, wie sich diese individuelle moralkognitive Struktur in der Berufsausbildung beeinflussen laesst und wie sie in Zusammenhang mit modernen wirtschafts- und unternehmensethischen Konzepten steht, um so die Grenzen, aber auch die Moeglichkeiten solcher Konzepte auszuleuchten. (Approaches in business ethics aim on structuring business enterprises in a kind, so that ethical acting in questions of business arises. Prerequisites for moral acting are individual moral cognitive structures, developed in a special kind. So the individual and organizational levels thus need to be connected. The paper shows, how individual moral-cognitive development can be influenced during the period of voca-tional education, and how the moral-cognitive quality is connected to modern ap-proaches on business education, so that on the one hand the potential, but on the other hand the limitations of those concepts are highlighted.)
