    This unit aims to provide students with an awareness of the ethical environment of business. The unit adopts a problem oriented and practical approach to the identification of ethical dilemmas and to the handling of ethical problems faced by business managers in Australia.

    Learning Outcomes

    On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

    1. Gain an understanding of the 'modern' role of ethics as a discrete discipline for effectively weighing and applying conflicting interdisciplinary and intradisciplinary considerations in business practice. In particular, students will receive a thorough introduction to traditional deontological and teleological ethical theory;

    2. Learn to recognise the elements of traditional ethical theory found in legal rules applicable to business managers; and

    3. Learn to appreciate the limitations of legal rules in their application to business managers.
