The course will enable students to recognize that nearly all challenging business decisions involve in addition to economic and legal considerations also an ethical dimension. We will start the course by studying major ethical theories, but we will quickly move to the study of specific cases of emissions scandals, financial frauds, responsibilites of tech companies and more. We will explore topics such as rights to privacy, conflicts of interest, insider trading, whistleblowing, sustainability and the rights and duties of agents and fiduciaries.
