Hobart, Launceston

Note:

Introduction

Being a successful manager and leader requires engagement with the ethical aspects of business management and consideration of the broader socio-political role that organisations play in contemporary society. The primary focus of this unit is the ethics of business and the application of moral norms to management practice. The unit begins by providing you with an understanding of the major international ethical traditions and their application to business management. The unit provides you with a thorough understanding of ethics and morality in organisations, and explores the key ethical issues facing contemporary managers. Topics include: ethical leadership; ethics codes; whistleblowing; corporate social responsibility; sustainability; diversity and social license. You are given the opportunity to analyse a wide range of contemporary case materials and explore how value-driven decision-making can occur in dynamic, complex and diverse environments.
