Ethical Dilemmas

Finance and IT professionals bump into ethical predicaments with surprising frequency. Worse, many don’t recognize them when they encounter them.

This program looks beyond the canons of ethics to teach the skills needed for identifying ethical problems and the sharp thinking that professionals need to attack ethical problems.
