It continues to break new ground. The 21st century will be crunch time for Western managers in terms of meeting fierce and unrelenting competition (especially from Asia) and in attempting to gain a share of the mammoth markets that rapidly changing demographics will create in India, China, Pakistan, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Nigeria and Brazil (in 2050 their total population will be four and a half billion). One of the goals of this course is to keep pace with these emerging and changing markets.

Our goal is to create distinctive managers with a unique leadership-oriented career opportunity.
Managing Business Ethics course is designed to equip students with a pragmatic approach. They need to identify and solve ethical dilemmas, understand their own and others’ ethical behavior, and promote ethical behavior in their organization. We prepare students for a range of roles in the business world across business functions. We assess how a business is doing, and how it should affect our individual and social lives, and ask what role business and its values (could) play in our society as a whole. This course presents the concept of Corporate Social Responsibility, and explores its relevance to ethical business activity, as well as considering the moral obligations of businesses to the environment and to people in other countries.
