GSBGEN 566: Ethics in Action - It's Never Black and White / Decisions Have Consequences

GSBGEN 566 is an elective course offered to 2nd-year MBA and MSx students. The goal of this course is to improve students' judgment in confronting ethical situations encountered in the normal course of business activities. Classes use the Socratic method to examine ethical questions and build analytical skills. The course aims to sharpen moral reasoning and build judgment without favoring a particular position. The course will be taught by Mark Leslie and Peter Levine, Lecturers.nThe course, which is "vignette" based, will involve revealing partial information about the situation during the class, interspersed with discussion as the vignette develops. Frequent student-to-student and student-to-instructor role-playing will be encouraged. Cases will be drawn from a wide selection of real business situations with protagonists as guests whenever available), including such topics as raising venture capital, managing major industrial customers, product distribution agreements, board of director fiduciary conflicts, developing financial instruments, senior management mutiny, work/life balance, etc. The class is extremely engaging - it is quite usual to find continuing discussion of the day's case outside the classroom among small groups of students. This class is for two GSB credits and will be graded on a pass/fail basis. Sixty percent of the final grade will be derived from classroom performance; the remainder will be based on a final written assignment.
