Global Business Ethics

In essence the subject of business ethics is concerned with what is thought to be morally right and wrong in terms of the way businesses conduct their commercial practices.

The purpose of this module is to encourage students to think ethically rather than encouraging people to become more ethical. 

This will involve four key elements, essentially:

  • a grounding in philosophical ethics using case examples and philosophical mind experiments.
  • to explore the impact using a range of cases on how modern business practices have reshaped the ethical and moral priorities of business people and the originations that they run.
  • an ethical approach will also mean students will examine the consequences of individual and collective decisions.
  • students will also be encouraged not only to reflect on how the world has gone wrong but also on how to put things right – a consideration of alternative futures for modern economics and business activities.
