Olivet University's College of Business delves into the ethical aspects of individuals and corporate decision-making in the marketplace with this quarter's Ethics and Responsibilities course.  Led by OCB faculty member Maria George, this course is part of the Olivet College of Business MBA curriculum. 

George will guide the participants towards better understanding of acquisition and utilization of resources for making ethical decisions within the context of managerial practice.  Through this course students will be able to better understand, acquire, and utilize Christian-based ethical guidelines and to discover what is the highest and ultimate end.

"Ethics is a core principle in business as well as faith. In a corporation, managers and employees are responsible for adhering to core underlying values which will influence all decisions throughout the value chain," states George. 

"Choosing what is moral may involve rejecting the route that will bring in the largest profits.  Living justly and adhering to ethical values means walking the straight and narrow path.  In one's personal life as well as in business, individuals make better decisions if they live by a principle-based life, which will guide a sound vision of human flourishing,.. As individuals and as corporations our goals ought to demonstrate a commitment to moral standards beyond ourselves. Participants should be able to hone ethical ideals by which all activities in their public and private lives can be assessed, " adds George.

Maria holds an MBA degree as well as a Master's Degree in Ethics and Journalism. She has had a rich working and teaching experience in business law.
