Welcome to Business Ethics with Karin Bischoff
Ethics is knowing the difference between what you have a right to do and what is right to do.
~ Potter Stewart
US Supreme Court Justice
The course introduces students to corporate social responsibility and ethics in strategic business settings. Through textbook and case study students will use established ethical theory and reasoning, as well as their own morals, to identify business decisions as ethical questions of right and wrong. Students will identify stakeholders and evaluate the impact of actions taken by individuals and businesses in case studies to determine which have done unethical things and what the outcome of those choices were, and which have acted with integrity and therefore made a positive impact on business culture. Students will consider the impact of business ethics in our shrinking world, considering changes in technology, and with respect to cultural differences in our organizations throughout the world.
