8406 Advanced Topics in Business
Ethics (1.5 credit hours)
purpose of this course is to continue to explore issues in business ethics
raised in the first year course. We
conceive of this course changing from year to year as particular topics become
of interest to faculty and students. The
course will consist of readings, cases, and books that are relevant to the topic
at hand. Example topics include
"Business Science and Ethics," "Background Theories of Business
Ethics" which would explore the underlying philosophical theories behind
much of the first year course, and "Topics in Ethics and Accounting and
Finance" exploring issues around corporate governance.
The purpose of such a generic offering is to be able to respond quickly
to student interest.
Discussion is 50%.
Paper/Project is 50%.
to Other Darden Electives
