January 12 to February 23 Tuesday and Thursday 1000 am 1 l 50 am in Room 158 Purpose and Objectives The fundamental purpose of business ethics is to enhance the ethical quality of decision making processes at all levels of business at the personal micro organizational meso and systemic macro levels This 2credit course on international business ethics builds on the previous course Foundations of Ethical Business Conductquot and concentrates on the international dimension of business ethics at all three levels with a special focus on China The course includes two parts In the first part we attempt to gain a deeper and more sophisticated understanding of what corporate responsibility in economic social and environmental terms can mean and how it is crucial for both big and small companies facing globalization We discuss several companies as examples to substantiate corporate responsibilities in the global context and explore different but complementary frameworks for global ethical standards Amartya Sen s capability approach and the contributions of world religions particularly the Declaration Toward a Global Ethics and the Interfaith Declaration of International Business Ethics The second part of the course focuses on crucial aspects for developing business ethics in China We use the books Developing Business Ethics in China 2006 and China 2020 2009 complemented by a number of videos and further articles as background information By investigating a few major challenges of doing business in China we hope to overcome widespread prejudices and cliches about China to become more sensitive for the complexities of this country and to help improve mutual understanding between the East and the West Assignments 0 Required readings to be completed
