Module 4 Corporate Social Responsibility & Stakeholder Leadership
Overview
This module explores the discourse of “corporate social responsibility:” its ethical meaning, social applications, and conceptual limits.
Learning Objectives
Upon successful completion of this module, you will be able to:
Ask and venture answers to the following key ethical questions: Is corporate social responsibility ethically important? Are objections to it ethically defensible? What might those objections be, and what assumptions underlie them?
Examine the way in which changing social attitudes impact ethical standards and best practices.
Test concepts from this unit by applying them to a practical problem of business ethics and justice in the workplace.
Key Concepts

Four key assumptions underlying opposition to the notion that corporations have ethical duties beyond increasing shareholder value. Are these assumptions credible?
