Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course is essentially business ethics. This is one of the most eye opening courses you will have to take as a business major. The case studies showcase controversial issues surrounding ethics in big business and you learn so much about the big world of business. Sorenson does a good job in promoting and engaging class participation. There is an end of the semester debate project and paper that was very difficult, but this last semester he made it optional. I
It really opened my eyes to the possible corruptness of corporations when profit and gains are involved. In addition, it gave insight on how to avoid these problems for the future. Sorenson made it very easy to engage in the class because these topics were controversial including medicare, animal rights, environmental rights, etc. I learned a lot about social issues and the history behind some of the biggest business ethics moments in history.

Advice for students:
Make sure you read all the case studies so you can participate in class. If you want an A in the class, opt for the debate/paper project because if you choose not to do it, the highest grade possible is a B. Also, the first midterm is very important which is on the cases. Re-read the cases several times and take notes.
