What does it mean to act ethically? How is acting in an ethical manner different from just following the rules? These questions and more are answered in this course. This course explains the concepts of organizational ethics, professional ethics, and character ethics; the difference between rules and values; how to identify an ethical issue; how to think through a course of action when confronted by an ethical problem; and what resources are available to help. By studying examples from the real world, both in the public and private sectors, students will learn about ethical and unethical behavior and the warning signs of an unethical environment. Students will also discover ethical culture and how it can be fostered in a business environment, and finally test their new knowledge through the experience of "being the boss": being confronted by various ethics-based scenarios and choosing the best course of action.
