2014 Business Ethics MOOCs from Santa Clara University

Wednesday, Aug. 6, 2014

Santa Clara University's Markkula Center for Applied Ethics is offering two free Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) to the public. Already more than 3,000 executives, professors and students have enrolled, and we invite you to join them.

The MOOCs are hosted on the platform and are taught by Kirk O. Hanson, longtime professor of business ethics at Stanford Graduate School of Business and Santa Clara University. 



This course explores the nature of ethics, its role in a business career, and how to make practical ethical decisions. Available starting August 18. Register


This course examines how managers and executives can create and sustain an ethical culture. Available starting August 18. Register

Two to Three Hours of Business Ethics Training Each Week for Four Weeks: Each course is organized to take no more than 2-3 hours per week, and the course is designed to be completed in four weeks. You can take the courses anytime during the period they are open.

Online Activities on Business Ethics: Each week you will have 2 or 3 short lectures to watch, each no more than 10-15 minutes in length. After watching the lectures, you will have three things to do: a case discussion, a short exercise, and a quiz. The cases are real business situations. The final project for each course is an ethical analysis, which you write, and peer reviews of other students' analyses.

Letter of Completion: Students who complete all of the course requirements will receive a letter of completion from the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics. No academic credit is granted.
