Every day of our personal and business lives we are confronted with numerous choices about what is right and what is wrong and, therefore, how to conduct ourselves. This course introduces the student to the basic principles of decision making, with a focus on ethical considerations. While the major emphasis of the course is business decisions, an examination of personal values and ethics form a foundation of the course. The course will focus on four primary areas: personal values and ethics; business ethics; ethics issues related directly to accounting and ethically managing workplace relationships. While the course contains theories and concepts, the student will concentrate on applying ethical concepts and principles to everyday, real-life issues and problems.
