Entrepreneurship and corporate social responsibility


About this course

The course is divided into two parts. In the first part we clarify the hazard to which business ethics is a response and to identify the idea of conscience in relation to corporate culture. We will examine the role of moral reflection (conscience) in the lives of each of us as individuals and the corresponding role it plays in the culture of an organization. The second part focuses on the application of the conceptual foundations laid in the first part. Especially attention will be paid on the moral agenda of leadership, ecological responsibilities, and globalization.
