Topics in Business Ethics: Cross-cultural interaction, Neuroscience, AI and ESG

With the growing global focus on authenticity, transparency and accountability, more than ever, truly effective leaders and managers can't afford to be simply 'aware' of ethical considerations - they need to understand why ethical practice is an essential part of smart (and profitable) business operations.
The CNAE SNOC equips students with knowledge and tools to navigate successfully the myriad ethical dilemmas they will inevitably encounter as managers and emerging business leaders.
The course establishes ethical foundations that can be used in business settings and beyond, examines the neuroscientific  basis for ethical (and unethical) behaviour in the workplace and explores the interplay between culture, values and conduct. The CNAE SNOC also delves into the ethical dimensions of key global environmental,  social and governance issues, as well as how the advance of artificial intelligence is giving rise to a plethora of unprecedented ethical challenges. Some Module 2 course sessions will welcome guest speakers to provide a practitioner perspective on the session theme. In past years, course speakers have included CEO founders, entrepreneurs, executives from major Japanese and non-Japanese companies and government officials.
