Online Business Ethics Course
Facing tough ethical decisions at work? Want to improve the ethical culture of your organization?
Markkula Center for Applied Ethics Executive Director Kirk O. Hanson offers two, free Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) in business ethics, which you can take at your own pace.
The MOOC provides practical advice on how to identify ethical dilemmas when they arise, how to get enough information to assess one's responsibilities, how to analyze a complex ethical choice, and how to marshal one's own resources and courage to act ethically. Available through April 28, 2014. Register now

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.
