This course will focus on ethics in the workplace. We will identify and consider practical solutions to ethical dilemmas faced by individuals and explore pragmatic managerial approaches that focus on how managers and organizations can influence ethical behavior. The course will also present an overview of the external legal and regulatory framework that affects the conduct and reporting of business activity. This will include an introduction to Sarbanes-Oxley, the most recent regulatory effort to influence the ethical behavior of both organizations and individuals associated with the organization with the goal of protecting the interests of one set of stakeholders - shareholders. We will also consider the extent to which compliance with such laws and regulations requires such extraordinary measures that ethical behavior in and of itself becomes sustainable competitive advantages.
