William A. (Bill) Brant, J.D., P.E.
You and I are considered to be in the “professions.” What are professions? What is ethics? What benefits do ethics provide? What are the sources of ethics?
We hear a lot today of globalization. What is globalization? Is it bad or good? Isn’t globalization just a business and economics term? How do you and I fit into the globalization process? How is globalization economically stabilized? We will look at the World Banks, World Trade Organization (WTO), the United Nations (UN), and the way these organizations affect globalization.
Trust is a big part of globalization. How professional ethics plays its important part, or should play an important part, in today’s globalized world will provide insight into what lies ahead. Professional ethics instills trust which is a fundamental element of relationships.
Our premise is that we must think, act, and be ethical, personally and professionally. The Triple Bottom Line (TBL) of business, why globalized corporations are adopting it and how, will be investigated. Can businesses make a profit being socially responsible and ethical?
Our hope is this course will persuade you to embrace ethics and the globalized world will become a better world.
This course includes a multiple choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
