    Course Description

    Business leaders, managers, and staff at all levels of an organization will face decisions in their pursuit of moving the business forward—however, some decisions may be easier to navigate than others. When faced with a situation where no clear answer rings out, how do you decide on the best course of action? This course introduces learners to the principles and processes involved in making ethical decisions—that is, making decisions that are based on close examination of different ethical frameworks, the notion of right and wrong, and moral standards. This course pays special attention to situations within the realm of human resources, where upholding an ethical approach to decision making is crucial.

    Course Description

    Ethical dilemmas confront those in business with the fundamental question: "What's the right thing to do?" But the "right" thing is often difficult to determine and an unexamined patchwork of ideas inform the decision. In order to better understand how to judge right and wrong, this course introduces some foundational ethical systems and explores their implications for business decisions, with a particular focus on the role human resource professionals have in safeguarding ethics in a business environment. Should a business focus on following the rules or on the effects the decision will have? Can self-interest play a role in making an ethical decision? This course presents the ethical theories of utilitarianism, ethical relativism, egoism, and Kantian ethics. It also explores the role religion plays in the development of ethical systems.

    Course Description

    Because it is the driving force behind economic organizations worldwide, capitalism is a term that business leaders, executives, and employees should know well. Another reason to know this term well: it is at the center of much debate and controversy. At the same time that capitalism is praised for its ability to stimulate innovation and spur economic growth, it is criticized for its contribution to inequality and injustice around the world. This course will explore the topic of capitalism and its relationship to ethics, justice, and inequality.

    Course Description

    Corporations have a fiduciary responsibility to produce profits for shareholders, but people increasingly believe that corporations have other responsibilities as well. Corporate social responsibility (CSR) recognizes the company's duty to its community, customers, and the environment as well as to shareholder value. This course defines corporations and discusses CSR best practices and important laws, such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, that constrain some unethical business practices. The course focuses on how the HR department can best support CSR and sustainability.

This course examines ethical challenges that companies and organizations may encounter and steps for how to address them. While all members of an organization are responsible for promoting and preserving an ethical culture within the organization, this course pays special attention to the role that human resources professionals play in mitigating ethical challenges.
