MANAGEMT 749 - Ethics in Management

Course Objective

The overall purpose of this course is to increase students’ capacity to sustain effective and ethical management and leadership in their organizations. This course is an opportunity for students to challenge and sharpen their “philosophy of business” and their own purposes in business. Students are helped to deepen their own self-awareness as ethical beings and leaders, and to strengthen their moral courage. Students see how every single management decision has ethical implications. Students wrestle with the question: Are there universal norms for individuals and business that transcend boundaries? Students are given tools for “finding and speaking their voice” when they confront ethical challenges and lapses.
