Specifically, the course aims to: (1) provide students with a basic understanding of the mechanisms whereby companies can be made to act in the best interest of shareholders, other stakeholders, and society as a whole; (2) provide students with knowledge of general ethical principles as applied to the special situations of business and the ability to make informed judgments through case analyses; and (3) equip students with the ability to formulate basic strategies in relation to corporate ethics and governance.
