In the post Enron age, corporate governance and ethics have become a major concern and is emerging as a strategic advantage for many companies. Top performing organizations have place ethics and governance responsibilities at the highest levels of corporate operations and governance. The Ethics Office is a fast growing career opportunity.
Professional Ethics is designed for leaders and decision makers in business and government who need to create and manage a culture of ethics and responsibility for their organization.
Using a workshop venue, the course presents ethics as a method for evaluating a person’s character and the quality of their thinking. We will explore the relation between law and ethics, and the major approaches to ethical thinking. The goal is to present an 11-step method and the criteria used to evaluate the ethics of any decision or action.
Using real business cases from public and private sectors, students will apply the 11-step method to evaluate a case, and present their evaluation to the class for review and critique.
