PHIL 364-DL : Business and Professional Ethics


This course examines, from a philosophical perspective, a variety of ethical issues relating to contemporary business. Types of questions asked in the course include: Should corporations be viewed solely as profit making-entities? What are some of the major philosophical theories of ethics, and how might they apply to contemporary business? What obligations do corporations have when they market their products? Does the morality of corporate behavior change from country to country? How should we expect corporations to behave in the future? 

This course is part of the Business Leadership year two curriculum. The course is conducted completely online. A technology fee will be added to tuition.

This course was formerly PHIL 390 Special Topics: Business Ethics.
