Cursusdoelen
After completing the course International Business Ethics the student is able to:
  • Critically evaluate mainstream concepts in business ethics from the perspective of continental philosophy;
  • Recognize the mulitplicity of meanings and perspectives that these concepts of business ethics encompass;
  • Understand how the main concepts in business ethics can restrict managerial responses in the practice of business ethics;
  • Read, present, and discuss philosophical ideas that shed a different light on well-known concepts in business ethics.
Inhoud
The purpose of this course is not only to provide students with a solid introduction to the field of business ethics, but also to critically discuss the more philosophical underpinnings of this burgeoning field of research. All the relevant topics - from corporate responsibility to the call for standardization, from leadership to corporate agency, or from sustainability to globalization - will be discussed in the light of the long-standing debate between analytical and continental philosophy. More specifically, we will provide alternative ways of thinking about well-entrenched themes and issues in business ethics. One of the goals of the course is to show how many concepts in business ethics have shifted meanings over time. Even though, the course discusses mainstream theories in business ethics at considerable length, we will also discuss more conceptual and philosophical issues (from a more 'continental' perspective). For example, what is the difference between responsibility and accountability? what is the meaning of globalization and how does it differ from internationalization? why is leadership so often discussed in moral terms rather than in aesthetic terms? why are business ethicists so much obsessed with managerial practice rather than with good philosophical theory? why do so many multinational corporations engage in philanthropy? what does the embracement of corporate social responsibility mean for democracy? and so on.
It is therefore important for students to understand that this course requires a certain interest in concepts or in philosophical reasoning, but we do not require any philosophical knowledge at the outset. This course is designed in such a way that non-philosophers should be capable of understanding what is going on in the realms of business ethics. The course consists of 13 lectures and 6 or 7 workgroups (depending. The main lecturers and course coordinator is Prof. Dr. RenĂ© ten Bos. The tutorials will be given by accomplished PhD-students who are, generally working in the area of business ethics and adjacent fields. Names will be announced in due course.  
Niveau
We do not require any special skills in philosophy, but a certain willingness on behalf of the students to engage with philosophy is important. Even though, the student will get a thorough introduction into the most important issues in business ethics, we will also cast a more philosophical perspective on them.  
Voorkennis
None, but we presuppose a willingness to engage with rather difficult themes and texts.
Toetsinformatie
The exam consists of 2 open questions and 30 multiple choice questions. Students are also required to play an active role in the tutorials.
