MBAP 710 Professional Ethics 


This course aims to help students become more profic1ient and more effective at making ethical decisions in the business worlds. In particular, it focuses on how managers should think about the role of values and ethics in their workplaces and take actions that follow their ethics and values. The class will help students recognize and incorporate ethics into their own decision-making, so that they may reason more effectively about the role of ethics and develop their sense of responsible judgment. Students will acquire critical thinking, communication, and managerial skills necessary to voice their values in a business environment. They will be exposed to a variety of ethical dilemmas in actual cases and plausible frameworks for dealing with these dilemmas. They will have opportunities to speak about their personal values and become better equipped to intervene in real life ethical dilemmas in a business setting, thus giving voice to their values. Ultimately, students will learn how they can contribute to developing ethical organizations.


Upon successful completion of this course, a student should be able to:
1. Articulate fundamental perspectives for ethical decision making.
2. Internalize a systematic ethical decision-making framework toward moral reasoning.
3. Develop the application ability to critically evaluate managerial and corporate ethics issues through analyzing real business cases.
