The interrelated subjects of leadership, ethics and contemporary issues will be examined. Because it is a culmination of their general education, students in this course use the methods and perspectives learned in the preceding general education courses. After examining general theoretical approaches through a common text, the course will involve three “case studies” with suitable assigned readings. One case study will focus on a corporation in order to illustrate leadership, ethics and contemporary issues; a second will focus on a person in order to illustrate leadership, ethics, and contemporary issues; the third will focus on an important modern episode, event or condition that exemplifies issues of ethics and leadership.
