PD9: Ethical Decision Making introduces students to the complex concepts underpinning ethical behaviour in the workplace. How can you make “good” decisions when you’re facing intense pressure from competitors and peers? Does trying to make a profit make you greedy? Students who take PD9 learn to answer these questions and more by working through games, discussion questions, and reflective activities.
What do PD9 students do?
- Analyze why good people make bad decisions
- Reflect on personal ethical views and how these views affect all parties in decision making
- Recognize personal responsibility and interest in individual and group contexts
- "I enjoyed thinking about the ethical issues while going through the course material. It provided me with a different perspective on life."
- "Great course! As a person who previously looked at decision making as a purely rational exercise, the introduction to social action problems and the impact of incentives changed how I view ethical decisions."
To pass PD9, a student must satisfy both of the below requirements:
- earn an overall grade of at least 50% on Assignments 1 - 4 (plus any bonus opportunities)
- receive a minimum of 50% on the Major Reflective Report
