Business Ethics: Education and Organizational Best Practices

Course Information

The field of ethics involves much more than knowing the difference between right and wrong.  In today’s business environment, it’s crucial to understand and apply business ethics in order to build and maintain trust with key stakeholders.  Your own personal code of ethics is only one part of the equation; fostering an ethical culture in your organization requires the ability to develop, manage, and lead others to ethical decisions.

The Business Ethics program will survey the current state of organizational ethics and provide you with effective methods for teaching and communicating business ethics concepts.  This course utilizes real-life examples of ethical dilemmas to illustrate strategies that can be used to measure an organization’s ethical culture.
