In this video, the McCombs School of Business looks to define integrity. Integrity is an essential moral virtue that is the keystone of good character. It entails comprehending and complying with one's principles. This is especially clear when one acts in accordance with their principles regardless of the circumstances – for example, even if no one will notice. The video concludes that integrity is morally courageous, and that integrity is "the critical connection between ethics and moral action."
