Ethical Decision-Making: Cultural and Environmental Impact

Georgetown University via edX

Overview

International corporations can trigger significant cultural shifts and environmental impacts. For example, when foreign corporations set up large mineral extraction operations in developing countries, both culture and environment are altered. Ethical concerns arise when manipulative marketing techniques are used to mislead foreign consumers, especially about potentially harmful products. In this course, you will consider the ethics of these types of global influence.

When should international marketing practices be valued for increasing consumers’ choices, rather than criticized for making dubious claims? What role should foreign corporations play in the decisions developing countries make about environmental conservation and economic growth? In exploring these issues, you will consider competing values and apply multiple frameworks for ethical analysis.
