Leadership, Management Strategy and Business Ethics

Over the last decade, both before and after the financial crises, it became clear to many of those working in the business sector that we have several problems to solve in our economic system.  The main goal of this course is to understand different ethical explanation models and to present, discuss and practice different strategical methods and explore their theoretical background in business ethics. Since every level of management is shaped by its leaders, the focus of this course is on leadership and how leaders can influence the ethical behaviour of a company.
