EAC to offer Business Ethics as a new class this spring
By Jeanné Clark
THATCHER, AZ—Eastern Arizona College’s Business Department has recently announced a new class for the Spring 2009 semester in the Small Business Management program entitled Business Ethics (SBM 221, section #0503).
The three-credit class will be held on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 9 p.m. and will focus on the various sources of ethics and a variety of tools for making good ethical decisions. The class will spend a good deal of time reviewing actual cases, most of which have had coverage in the popular press.
Business instructor Mark Anderson will teach Business Ethics in the spring, and he strongly emphasizes how important ethics are in business. “Ethical decisions do, in fact, lead to improved success and profitability for businesses,” said Anderson. “To help illustrate this concept to students, I plan to incorporate information regarding AIG, Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, and some of the other more recent problem companies we’ve heard about this fall.”
Anderson continues, saying that “though it will be required for all Small Business Management majors, anyone is invited to take the class, because every business, large or small, can benefit from acting ethically.”
