I was lucky to have lecturers who reached out to me not only as academic mentors, but also as models of excellence and commitment.

What does it mean to be ‘ethical’ in a work environment? We need to realise that our daily work doesn’t take place in a vacuum, but in a 21st-century global and local economic, social and organisational context. This context provides many challenges, both ethical and otherwise, for leaders, managers and employees. This course will help you identify some of the challenges faced in an organisational culture and examine them from an ethical viewpoint, thus enabling you to understand the moral implications of your own decisions and actions within your particular work context.
