  • MGMT 690 - Business Ethics (Motivated Undergraduates Welcomed!)

    Professor Cara Putman, MW 4:30-6:00pm 

    Business Ethics is designed to move past a surface level understanding that we need to act ethically in the business environment to wrestling with what does that look like and what frameworks can help us do just that. I also firmly believe that we have to prethink our decisions before we are confronted with opportunities to compromise ethically.
     
    We will incorporate current headlines to our evaluation of major ethical lapses of the past. Last fall Wells Fargo "cooperated" and we spent time discussing how that could have happened as well as exploring what can be done. Here's what one student said about last year's class" I really enjoyed the discussions we had in class. Cara really pushed us to think deeper and question our beliefs. I loved that we were able to talk about current companies that were showing up in the news. It was refreshing to have an assignment to read a 'fun' book instead of a textbook...this really added to the class."
     
    Students will need to request a Classification override and a Program override from their Academic Advisor to enroll in this course.
