You are required to compare and contrast at least two theoretical philosophies presented in class to solve an ethical issue being faced by a business organization. You are to note possible differing outcomes depending on the approach taken. With the chosen approach(s), explain the likely results/outcomes and offer any further observations/questions as part of your conclusion. A minimum of two citations (academic or business quality publications-not other textbooks, not wiki…) for each of the theoretical philosophy included in the paper and the subject(s) of the case itself will be required. The student will choose either an approach (or more if complementary), explain why, and describe likely outcomes.
Through multiple in-process submissions of the portions of the final product, a 2500-3500 word term paper, the goal will be to see demonstrated an improved ability to recognize and solve problems that involve different constituencies, ethical issues and possible approaches, moral standards, and individual interests.
As this is a writing intensive course the development of the final version of the paper will be in great part led by the input of the writing assistant as drafts of the sections of an APA style paper is developed.
