Ethical Issues in Business

The course succinctly focuses in Ethics  as subject and a thoughtful way of doing things.  Theories in Ethics shall be explored as a branch of Philosophy concerned with determining what is right  along with  principles and actions; and what is good ; what ends or ideals are worth pursuing and what values are worth holding.  Practical Ethics is the art or techne (know-how) of figuring out how to make things better rather than worse with regard to concrete or actual situations.  Business Ethics is a type of applied ethics.  As such, it is concerned with principles applied and actions taken in the workplace and the boardroom.  At the same time, since business practice is inseparable from the rest of human life, Business Ethics has to take account of the well-being of human society and the natural environment. Emphasis will be placed on tools for problem-solving and decision-making.
