Leadership and Ethics Courses
The following courses are offered to undergraduate and graduate students:
This course focuses on exploring morality, ethics, and decision-making by looking at contemporary practices in business. Students discover theoretical and practical ways to approach moral and ethical dilemmas in organizational life and improve their skills in moral reasoning and ethical decision-making.
An interdisciplinary analysis of how fundamentals of economics, finance, accounting, marketing, management, and information technology each raise ethical and legal considerations in the business environment.
Focusing student business and entrepreneurial skills on social and/or environmental problem-solving.
One goal of this course is to focus on the skills students need to effectively lead and manage work teams. Another goal is to explore the topic of leadership in a corporation that is socially responsible. We will take a decidedly experiential and applied approach to examining this topic. We will be examining and evaluating techniques for leading individuals, groups, and teams as well as exploring the concept of corporate social responsibility. At the end of this course, participants should be able to translate theories into more specific competencies that will improve their ability to lead and manage in a corporation that is socially responsible.
Increasing attention to the impact of business on society has made ethics more important to organizational success than at any time in recent history. Corporate governance processes are under constant scrutiny and the importance of legal and ethical analysis in business decision-making is now central. This course explores how law and stakeholder interests impact corporate social responsibility, giving participants a solid understanding of the role of ethics in management and experience managing tradeoffs in ethical decision-making.
Businesses are increasingly part of a complex web of duties and responsibilities, both formal and informal. Legal and regulatory issues pose important obstacles and opportunities to organizations as they interact with the environment. Moreover, increasing attention to the impact of business on society has made ethics more important to organizational success than at any time in recent history. With corporate governance processes driving ethics and the emergence of a new breed of social entrepreneurs, executives need to understand the centrality of this dimension to business. This course explores how ethics, law, and the regulatory environment impact corporate activities, giving participants a solid understanding of the role of each of these in organizational decision-making.
Organizational leaders must be able to navigate the complex legal environment and fully understand the role of corporate governance in stakeholder relationships, strategic planning, and corporate performance. At the same time, today's attention to the social impact of business has made ethics more important to organizational success than at any time in recent history. This course combines these topics to explore the interplay of law, stakeholder interests, corporate ethics, financial performance, and social return on investment.
