11. The eleventh and final objective of the course is to provide students with an in- depth look at Ethics in International Business. Students are shown how ethics becomes an issue across cultures because of the differing political, economic, and legal systems as well as variations in cultural values. Attention is given to areas highly impacted by such variations: employment practices, human rights, environmental pollution, corruption, and moral obligations. Several different philosophical theories that offer a foundation for ethical decision-making are examined. The roots of unethical decision-making and how to make ethical decisions are addressed. Students will gain an appreciation for the difference between ethical and legal responsibility. Cases on Nike and Halliburton provide contemporary examples of ethics in International Business.
