Creating a Course in Global Business Ethics: A Modest Proposal
Dhooge, Lucien J.
Journal of Legal Studies Education, v28 n2 p207-248 Sum-Fall 2011
The College of Management at the Georgia Institute of Technology has placed more emphasis on the topic of business ethics in the past few years. Business ethics has always been a required component of the legal environment of business course whether taught at the undergraduate or graduate levels. More recently, the college has introduced an undergraduate course devoted exclusively to business ethics, although regrettably this course remains an elective rather than a required part of the curriculum. In the past two years, the college has also endorsed new ethics courses with technology and global emphases. These courses are the undergraduate progeny of well-established ethics courses in the college's management of technology and global business programs. This article discusses several aspects of creating a course in global business ethics. Part II presents the rationale for the course. Part III discusses the selection of course materials and pedagogical approaches. Part IV focuses on the course content and materials. This part describes each reading and case study, how each of these readings and studies advance the course objectives, and questions presented by these materials that may form the basis for class discussion.
