Managerial Social Responsibility BAA310

Hobart, Cradle Coast

Introduction

Sound and effective management and leadership require not only financial, legal and technical expertise but also ethical competency.  This unit provides a focus on managerial decision-making, and in particular introduces a series of frameworks for discerning what is right and wrong in important areas of business practice. Economic and Legal competency represents the ability to understand the fundamental requirements needed to run a successful business. Ethical competency compliments this understanding with additional abilities to: a) perceive the ethical implications of a situation, b) engage in sound ethical reasoning, and c) develop practical problem solving strategies.  In this unit students will be exposed to a range of ethical perspectives, and explore how acting in a socially responsible manner may involve organisations moving beyond simple legal compliance.
