An introduction to practical reasoning at the intersection of business and society. Emphasis on application of ethics frameworks and core principles of business law to problems of individual, organizational, and social responsibility in business. Includes a significant engagement in writing as a form of critical inquiry and scholarly expression to satisfy the WID requirement.
This class is designed to help you: 1) Map out a personal sense of purpose in business and to develop a hierarchy of personal commitments and values; 2) Understand the interplay between personal and organizational values and law; 3) Develop a vocabulary and conceptual framework for making sense of the normative challenges of business life; 4) Provide a foundation for understanding the role of legal norms in business, especially those evolved by the common law; 5) Develop the ability to articulate and defend normative claims; 6) Understand how insights in behavioral ethics, such as the propensity to bias, create obstacles to realizing ethical ambitions, and how to work around them; 7) Develop the ability to write argumentatively in a persuasive manner; 8) Develop sensitivity for each other’s values and aspirations; and 9) Learn how to work cooperatively and effectively in small groups.

ghuerta (Tue, 16 Feb 2016 17:34:53 GMT): I removed the (WID) tag in the Long Course Title, since it is redundant. The WID status is accounted for by the W in the course disc. code. Confirmed with R. Rediang and K. Rogan, prior to revision. ~ Gil
