The opening decade of the twenty-first century has demonstrated that religion continues to be a strong cultural influence that impacts business in a globalized economy. In this course students will develop the background knowledge and analytic skills necessary to identify and negotiate religious commitments in business relationships. We will analyze select case studies to explore various ways in which business practitioners can and do address the questions that arise in everyday interactions in business contexts. Students will be asked to deal with the cases as they would do so in a real business setting, and to defend their decisions using ethical principles and religious reasoning learned in class.
This course is restricted to 3rd and 4th year Commerce students.
RELS students may enroll in the course with permission of the instructor.
