ACCT-635 Business Law, Ethics and Governance (3)


This course prepares business managers to function effectively within a legal and ethical environment and to recognize the social responsibility of the business enterprise. Students are exposed to U.S. legal systems and legal processes with emphasis on the areas of business law that are fundamental to the operations of a business entity. The course focuses on several areas of substantive commercial law relevant to the business manager, and is designed to foster the manager's ability to recognize legal and ethical issues and their managerial implications, minimize the frequency and expense of legal conflict and litigation, as well as to discern the distinction between what is legal, what is ethical, and what is in the best interests of the firm and its stakeholders. Grading: A-F only. Restriction: MBA or Analytics (MS) program.
