The state of the art based on the expert panel’s consensuses on the emerging issues in Business Ethics permits the early detection of emerging lines, thus narrowing the research line and decreasing subject selection time.
Additionally, an active research map has been constructed based on researchers, countries, and lines of investigation.
It has been proposed to use these three perspectives (person, organization, and system) with the aim to establish a complete analysis in which personal dilemmas, corporate social responsibility, and the ethical implications of the socio-economic system are analyzed and interconnected to obtain a complete moral perspective of Business Ethics.This study will contribute to providing a healthy picture of the discipline, in line with the research of Werhane and Freeman  years ago.Moreover, the prediction of topics will be helpful for new and novel researchers in the area in terms of increasing their confidence about the interest in the topics in which they are going to contribute or in terms of detecting the topics and the researchers that have previously researched those topics.More importantly, there are sometimes different understandings of the same term.Such is the case with “ethics in the company or business,” which is described by different terms at different levels of application.There is a gap in the representation of the research on certain management topics in Business Ethics, so this research will constitute a significant and valuable tool for novel researchers.It is useful for creating a research agenda.], and there are many different issues integrated as Business Ethics topics and problems.A Delphi method was used to achieve consensuses among the perceptions and opinions of experts about Business Ethics matters.Moreover, the research agenda is investigated using a Delphi process developed with the participation of 12 experts from eight countries (France, Spain, the UK, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, Germany, and Hungary) from March to September 2015.At the end, the concluding remarks and references are presented.].According to the 1998 Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences winner Amartya Sen, there is an important link among economics and ethical theory.
