Learning Results

• To acquaint students with various ethical systems, both philosophical and Christian, so that the student will have a solid foundation with which to analyze ethical issues within the business world, showing that different schools or traditions of ethical systems lead to conflicting conclusions.
• To learn how to critique various ethical analyses so as to understand the philosophical traditions that others are at least implicitly using in their ethical analysis of business situations.
• To develop a solid understanding of a Christian ethical framework, both for the purpose of living and conducting one’s vocation to the glory of God and being able to think through and analyze moral challenges from within a Christian framework.
