PHL 203 Business Ethics

3 Credit(s) DI CS PGR
Business Ethics introduces students to major theories of social and economic justice and helps students reflect upon the rationale for and obligations of privately owned businesses in a good and just society. Students also examine consequentialist and deontological moral theories and how moral principles apply to concrete problems in business and professional life. Through the investigation of normative first principles and the analysis of case studies, students explore what legal and social frameworks businesses ought to operate under and how, within today’s globalized economy, to ethically resolve the competing interests of owners, creditors, employees, customers, governments, and other people and institutions (and perhaps non-human animals or ecosystems) directly or indirectly affected by businesses. Three lecture hours per week. Required of Sociology majors with a Human Behavior in Organizations option, SMS majors with Sport Management Concentration and recommended for Business Administration majors.
