Abstract: Professional ethics has become more important over the years. As we become more specialized in our occupation, the issues become that much more complex and hard. Professional bodies have increasingly been at work developing, revising and refining professional codes of ethics [1]. Professional ethics helps a professional choose what to do when faced with a problem at work that raises a moral issue. Professional ethics encompass the personal, organizational and corporate standards of behavior expected of professionals. Professionals are capable of making judgments, applying their skills and reaching informed decisions in situations that the general public cannot do [2]. Business is the primary player in a system of complexity. The system works only because private and public-sector managers on the whole have a strong sense of responsibility. They take on the burden of making sure that others work together and do their jobs in a responsible manner. When things do work, it is because managers collectively adhere to professional standards even when immediate incentives to do so may be less than compelling. It is important to understand and ensure that professional ethics as a key success of business practice.
