Business Ethics & Social Responsibility - 2nd Trimester 2020/21

3.5 ECTs / Trimester-Long Course / English

Why does Ethics matter in business? What are the ethical responsibilities associated with being a manager, an accountant or a financial trader? What are the main commonalities and differences of recent corporate scandals and how is it possible to adopt individual and organizational strategies to prevent new ones? Why should business organizations behave in a socially responsible way? How can organizations develop a business strategy that integrates the generation of commercial and social value?

This course will assist students to answer such questions through the discussion of case studies concerning ethical issues and dilemmas faced by managers, financial professionals and entrepreneurs in different cultural, industrial and organizational contexts.
