Walking the Talk: Business Ethics

Professional EDGE
Monday, October 22, 2018 (All day)
EDGE Points: 
EDGE Competency: 

Calendar date listed is the start date for online experience. Students will have one week (8 a.m. Monday to 11:59 p.m. the following Sunday) to complete required activities via Canvas. 

Ethical dilemmas arise in the workplace on a regular basis, and how we as contributors in the business world handle these dilemmas has far-reaching effects. In this module we will evaluate the impacts people’s decisions have on businesses and stakeholder groups involved—focusing on examples that demonstrate both good and bad practices. Along with business examples, we will look at research on why good people do bad things and ways to help you walk the talk upon graduation.
