Describe a time when you were faced with an ethical dilemma. What strategies did you use to resolve the issue? What would you have done differently if faced with a similar situation? (Please limit your answer to 350 words.)

What I plan to write is as follows:

The Business Development Manager of our company was going against company policy and keeping the money meant for client with himself. Solution 1. To confront him directly but this would bring friction which will not be good for office environment and chances were low that he would stop doing that. Solution 2. To report this to the senior management directly and get him fired or whatever action seniors take but again anybody in place could still do the same. What I did? I talked to seniors and suggested them to fix the root cause of the problem so that nobody can do similar practice.

Sounds like a PERFECT situation for this question.

Thank you so much.

I will appreciate if you can elaborate the question and answer expected and best answer. It will help others who will read the question and me also.

Hey dude, I'm not sure what you mean... The best answer is the best answer that YOU have, and I think you chose one that works really well. The core of the story fits perfectly into what the question asks. Other than that, I can say, don't forget that you are also writing an MBA essay. What I mean is that along the way of telling the story you can show interesting stuff (like leadership, or the fact that you were working on a super-important project, and so on...) Other than that the "Best answer" is the best one you can write from this story.
