Adaptations due to the pandemic

In this course we upload lecture contents and accompanying tutorials as videos. Tutorials are also given as video conferences. In addition, there are weekly video conferences in which students can ask questions. The learning progress can be self-checked by means of quizzes. Depending on the current situation, this concept may change at short notice.

The course is an introduction to business ethics. The following topics are discussed in particular:

  1. Business ethics as part of business studies; the relationship between ethics and business studies
  2. Fundamentals of business ethics
  3. Overview of important business ethics approaches
  4. Selected applications in the company

In the tutorial we will deepen the contents of the lecture with texts, experiments and case studies.

This course has already been honored by the students several times with the teaching award. This prize is awarded to chairs whose courses have been evaluated as excellent.
