Business Ethics: Interactive Cases - OLET1205

Year - 2020

Where the 0 credit point Business Ethics unit provides a theoretical perspective on business ethics, this for-credit upgrade provides the opportunity for students to practise and expand their understanding in a problem-based, intensive mode. Students work interactively to resolve a staged ethical dilemma. This format, which is frequently used in business organisations for the ethics training of staff, allows students to unpack the different roles, rules, norms, politics, and power relationships in companies, to appreciate the intricacies of human interaction and decision making, and to search for an ethically satisfying resolution of the staged dilemma. Additional literature on the types of dilemmas faced helps students further refine their understanding.
