Develop your professional judgment in this case study-driven course for professionals operating in a complex, global, constantly-transforming world.

This course provides plentiful opportunities for networking with other professionals and experts in your field.

This course will provide professionals with theoretical and practical tools to understand the ethical dilemmas posed by global transformations to their professional decision-making. The professionals will leave this course equipped with the professional ethical judgment skills necessary to address those dilemmas. The approach taken is interdisciplinary and will combine philosophical ethics with insights from law, business, history and decision-making studies.

This course will actively engage participants in the ethical judgment process by having participants solve numerous case studies together. Further, participants will be asked to come up with a problem from their own professional experience that they will work through and solve based on the insights gained from this course. Students will finish the course with a concrete action plan for how to deal with the decision-making challenges posed by global challenges in their professional life.
