Nowadays all around the globe managers are working in an ever increasingly competitive environment and their education and formation should take into account the new challenges posed by the traits of this kind environment. Though this article we try to underline the importance of business ethics education which with its various subjects, including corporate social responsibility, begins to play an important role in the education process of future managers all over the world, as a new way for approaching problems that arise in this international business environment characterises as being highly competitive for limited resources. We will analyse the roots and the premises that determined this need for change in the approach of future manager’s education, the benefits and challenges associated to this change, and we will set the premises for an analysis of the level at which this need for business ethics education for managers is understood and taken into account by the Romanian business and economics curriculum in universities.
