BUSI 896: Ethics & Management

Class Program

Leaders have a responsibility and a duty to “do the right thing” using an awareness of their own and others’ ethical viewpoints which is particularly challenging in cross-cultural environments. This course explores the numerous ethical duties faced by organizations and managers. Utilizing ethical and analytical frameworks from different cultures and traditions, participants will explore a wide range of ethical decisions and strategies – many with paradoxical and conflicting perspectives. Different ethical systems and modes of formal ethical thought are explored in order to reveal and assess personal and ethical intuitions, cultural sensitivities, and assumptions which are then applied to ethical challenges in international business.
