Business ethics is increasingly important as expectations of corporate social responsibility keep rising, as do negative consequences for failing those expectations. Public, institutional, regulatory and government pressures mean decisions on business ethics can now determine corporate and career survival. This advanced course on business ethics builds on the introductory Business Ethics and Corporate Social Responsibility course in second year and is a credit toward the Certificate in Social Impact. The course will go into depth in critical areas such as professional ethics, moral standards, stakeholder management, decision models and designing ethics programs to achieve an ethical workplace and corporate social responsibility objectives. A number of critical issues will be explored in depth.
This course is restricted to students enrolled in the 3rd or 4th year of their program.
