Description

Companies that ignore their legal and ethical obligations to owners, customers, and consumers open the door to parties who seek legal recourse that can limit their gain or even threaten their existence. Law and ethics, when incorporated properly into managerial decision-making, provide strategic tools to facilitate growth, creativity, competitive advantage, and legal certainty and to reduce legal risk and liability. By examining the application of law and ethics to a variety of business and corporate governance issues, this course offers the master?s student an understanding of how businesses can comply with the law and use an ethical culture as a positive strategy for making successful business decisions.
