BUS 225: Business Ethics

Class Program
Credits 3

Fall, Summer
This course considers ethical issues that arise in the context of business needs and practices. We begin by reviewing normative ethical theories, which we will then apply to specific questions that arise in the practice of business-e.g. "In whose interests ought corporations be governed?", "What obligations do businesses have to protect and preserve the environment?", "What ethical norms should govern international business ventures?", "Should employees be fired at-will, or should they only be fired only for just cause?", etc.
