PHIL 318: Business Ethics
Course Description: The course has four main goals. First, it will provide a general introduction to ethical theory and, more importantly, the tools of ethical decision-making and problem-solving. Second, the course will acquaint students with the generally-accepted ethical standards in the business world. Third, it will give students a chance to think through various positions on several controversial ethical, political, and public policy issues related to the business world. Finally, the course will encourage students to develop an ethical perspective on business activities—a perspective which emphasizes the balancing of economic goals with other important values, including moral values.
