BC 401 Business Ethics Practicum (SS)

Recent neuroscience research indicates ethical decisions are made unconsciously related to emotions and the body. Effective ethical decision-making requires application of both reason and emotion. Reason is insufficient without emotionally based character virtues of honesty, courage, empathy. Ethics pedagogy requires integration of the traditional didactic intellectual education and embodied practice methods for emotional education. Ethical and leadership skills are grounded in self-awareness and practice. The purpose of the practicum is to provide students with the opportunity to develop their self-awareness, leadership abilities and ethical capabilities through practicing emotional intelligence skills and ethical decision-making. Students participate in exercises and dialogue in class, practice activities outside class designed to develop their ethical decision making; emotional intelligence, and leadership abilities.
