MGT 285 - Social Responsibility in Business


This course will examine current business practices in the context of social expectations and pressures. We will examine the recent scandals (Enron, Tyco, Worldcom, etc.) and the individuals behind them, as well as look at companies that build successful brands on the basis of social responsibility (Seventh Generation, Johnson & Johnson, etc.). The course will consider the influence of personal and organizational values domestic and international governmental regulation, and the pressures on corporate bodies from organized and spontaneous non-governmental interest groups. The emphasis will be on critically evaluating contemporary business events, identifying the value systems that explain the observed behaviors, and analyzing their immediate and long-term effects on organizational viability.
