This course on financial ethics will be taught from a global and multi-disciplinary perspective as it integrates philosophy with management, economics, strategy, law, and public policy. The objectives of this course are to:
1.) Introduce students to a conceptual framework that will facilitate the examination of the range of ethical issues that arise when conducting business in today’s global marketplace;
2.) Encourage student thinking, reasoning and decision making from the points of view of various stakeholders (customers, employees, suppliers, governments, society) as each of these relationships creates ethical challenges and responsibilities. Students should consider such ethical issues in terms of the type of life they themselves wish to lead and the type of public policy for governing business that they are willing to support.
