Dozierende Christopher I Rider (chris.rider@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt This course consists of two related modules that consider ethics and corporate social responsibility, respectively, from the perspective of organizational leaders. The two modules are designed to prepare students to lead ethical and responsible organizations that are consistent with their values. Each module draws extensively upon social science theory and empirical evidence to inform individual-specific perspectives on ethicality and responsibility. Students will be expected to analyze business news articles and case studies for each module. Through reflective assignments, students will develop their leadership values, styles, and methods. Each module culminates in a group exercise that reinforces the module learning objectives.

1) Leading the Ethical Organization

This module addresses both individual and organizational causes and consequences of unethical behavior. We also discuss how participants and observers interpret these behaviors through different ethical lenses.

Social psychological theories inform our consideration of how individuals justify unethical behavior. Empirical evidence from experimental and observational studies also inform this understanding. We then discuss how leaders can shape organizational contexts in ways that discourage unethical behavior and encourage ethical behavior.

By the end of the module, students will appreciate how what is and is not considered ethical varies across both individuals and organizations. Students will also be prepared to lead organizations that reflect their ethical principles.

2) Leading the Socially Responsible Organization

This module addresses why and how corporate social responsibility (CSR) matters for global companies. We discuss diverse perspectives on the social responsibilities of the modern corporation.

Various theories and empirical studies inform our understanding of how a company can be viewed both favorably and unfavorably by different groups (e.g., investors, employees, customers, suppliers, regulators). We apply the strategic value creation framework to identify how these groups’ concerns influence corporate costs, market prices, and customer willingness to pay.

By the end of the module, students will appreciate how corporate social responsibility can be a source of competitive advantage in markets and industries. Students will accordingly be prepared to create and capture greater economic value for their organizations by attending to CSR considerations.
