Abstract

In a complex and fast moving environment challenges like globalization, diversity, competition, and sustainability require organizations and their constituents to continuously adapt, innovate, and engage in long-term improvement processes. Organizations, on the one hand, need to broaden their traditional view of business. They are required to adopt long-term perspectives, combine profitability with sustainability, behave ethically, all the while managing various stakeholders' expectations. Future managers, project managers, team members, on the other hand, need to embody ethical values and practices in their day-to-day (managerial) behaviour in order for them, and their organization, to attain an ethical and sustainable competitive advantage. This course helps the students to recognize and respond to the ethical dilemmas and social responsibility issues of the business life. This course exposes students to rigorous theoretical analysis, while at the same time striving for practical relevance for real-world business practices. This course will be based on a balance between theory (mini-lectures on the assigned readings) and practice (team-work, class discussions and case-studies). Participants are expected to contribute to the overall learning through their active participation in class discussions.

  • non-blocking Class activity
    Multiple learning methods will be used throughout this course including readings, lectures, multiple group activities, cases, class discussions, and videos. Class sessions will highlight certain points from the readings, provide additional information, and, in almost all cases, have an experiential component. Reading assignments provide a basis for both lectures and discussions and must be read prior to each class session. Moreover, there will be in-class quizzes that will cover the content of the readings. You will learn most from the class sessions if you read and think about the assigned materials beforehand. The readings introduce many more ideas and tools than our limited class time allows. The fact that we do not discuss a particular concept does not mean that the idea is not important. If you are strongly moved or have questions about something in the reading that is not mentioned in class, please bring it up in class or with the professor at another time. In general, lectures should give insight into the concepts and ideas underlying the topics under review. The theoretical core of presentation should be preceded and followed up by clear examples. It is highly recommended to provide students with the lecture slides prior to the lecture so that they could familiarize themselves with the material in advance and prepare some questions. The lecturers should refer the students for recommended textbooks, reviews and papers as needed throughout the presentation. Practice classes play the key role in providing the course. The difficult tasks should be discussed and worked out together with students. All ongoing assessments is used to teach students how to discuss, argue, make analytics and think with regards to course-content. Guidelines for reading the materials When reading the material, you are not required to learn by heart all the content. You need to understand the main concepts and be able to discuss them in class. For example, for chapter 2, you will need to be able to discuss the following questions: 1. What is an ethical dilemma? 2. What does it mean to have a prescriptive approach to ethical decision making? 3. How do the consequential theories, deontological theories, and virtue ethics differ to each other?
