STRT-583 Business Ethics
This course has several objectives. First, to make the student more knowledgeable about central concepts and theories of business ethics, and comfortable in discussing them in business and other organizational contexts. Second, to foster student skills in applying these tools to ethical issues they face. This includes identifying ethical issues, analyzing the nature of these issues, articulating the reasons (both in class and in writing) for the best resolution of those disputes and developing ways to realize such resolutions within the organizations in which they work. Third, to give students an opportunity to reflect on their own values as they relate to their present and future leadership roles. Finally, to encourage development of the moral understanding, imagination, judgment and communication that are needed for moral leadership.
I urge you to bring into this course what you have learned in other courses here at MSB, in your experience in your own organizations, as well as, in your own life experiences. However, I also recommend that you reflect critically on this knowledge and these experiences, how they can best be applied to the ethical issues you will face, and what this implies for how you ought to go about your work (and personal) activities in the future.
