ORG 7045 - Critical Systems Inquiry, Ethics and Social Responsibility

Leading and making responsible decisions today are complex and challenging ventures. With a human development and capabilities perspective and a foundation in stakeholder principles, this interdisciplinary course critically explores organizational integrity and professional ethics and examines the workplace and wider social challenges faced daily by organizational professionals in the business, nonprofit, and government arenas. Central to this course are the refinement of students' professional and organizational ethics viewpoints, development of new corporate social responsibility models and practices, and how to thoughtfully integrate social justice and sustainability principles into organizational operations and decision making. 3 credit(s)
