What are you going to do?
Business-society relationships are multidimensional and often complex. They involve multiple stakeholders and multiple perspectives. In the module we will develop and practice a method of approaching such complex issues by looking at them from three perspectives:
- Market (is it profitable?)
- Law (is it allowed?)
- Ethics (is it the good thing to do?)
Business problems don't come neatly rubberstamped as 'marketing'-problems or 'ethical'-issues. It is part of the manager's competence to figure out what type of problem (s)he is dealing with in the first place. Complex problems are multi-faceted and multi-layered. How to scrutinize the legal aspects of a problem? How to be sensitive to the business opportunities of ethical and social problems?
Overall the special ‘take away’ of this module is the integrative approach. The module aims at helping managers to become broad-minded and to approach business problems in a multi-disciplinary way.
Our interactive classes stimulate you to combine theory and practice, and discuss a variety of ethical themes. A group research project will help improve your insights in qualitative research methodology and help you improve your capacity for evidence based decision making.
There are three blocks of two days, containing:
- Introductions to the three institutions of the market, law and business ethics, focusing on the market and ethics
- In depth lectures on IT ethics, management of integrity, contracts law, ethical leadership.
- Guided class room discussions
- Peer review session, preparing you to write the final paper for the module
