The case study “IKEA in Russia: Ethical Dilemmas” authored by Prof.G. V. Muralidhara and Ms.Namratha V. Prasad won the award in “Ethics and Social Responsibility” category. The case study documented the dilemma faced by a well-recognized company that wanted to adhere to its ethical standards, even though not doing so would have been easier from a business point of view. It helps students realize that giving into corruption does not make business easier in the long run.
