Unit 7: Why Ethics Still Matter
When taking an ethics course, you need to understand that "just because it's right, doesn't make it legal; and just because it's legal, doesn't make it right". This is an important sentiment to keep in mind because, in business, there are bound to be challenges we must face that fall into one category, "right", or the other, "legal", but which type is ethical? Understanding the context of ethics, its foundation, and its history will make it easier to understand your role in ethical conduct and how to resolve ethical dilemmas in the future. In this unit, you will learn how ethics evolve in a business environment, commit to an ethical view, become an ethical professional, and how you can make an ethical difference in the world.
