BADM737. Managerial Ethics and Social Responsibility

This advanced management research seminar course will provide students with principles and core concepts of managerial ethics and social responsibility. Managers need to be sensitive to issues of social responsibility and ethical behavior. This sensitivity is often a result of pressures from the public, various interest groups, governmental entities, and media coverage. Students will conduct a study of various managerial ethics and social responsibility concepts and practices used by managers to ensure organizational goals and strategies are implemented as intended. Topics include ethical decision-making, corporate culture, corporate social responsibility, ethics and marketing, and business and environmental sustainability among others. The final project in the seminar will be the development of a scholarly research paper analyzing a contemporary ethical management and social responsibility problem. Prerequisite: BROL 700 or permission from the Program Director. Credit, 3 hours.
