Management Communications (2011)
In Management Communication (BUS 5390), students learn how to communicate effectively in business settings, from executive presentations to think-on-your feet opportunities to small-group interaction. They identify barriers to communication and learn how to break down those barriers. They also discuss corporate communication issues including ethics and social responsibility. In the two weeks devoted to communicating ethics, we cover ethical decision-making, conflict of interest, slippery slope, and corporate social responsibility – doing well and doing good. Students also take an ethics survey, discuss business ethics awareness in today’s culture, environment in society and business, and participate in an ethics case competition in ethical leadership. In the discussion of identity, reputation, and image, students consider how a company’s approach to ethical, social, and environment responsibility contributes to its value with its stakeholders.
