Management in finance, although extremely rewarding, leaves you with challenges concerning personal values, conflict, power management and influencing.
The Responsible Management in Finance course addresses these challenges by viewing the finance professional as a steward of the global economy.
You will learn to apply your fully-formed and creditable values to the workplace. We cover key insights of behavioral ethics and work in groups to distinguish what helps and hinders ethical expression. Physically practicing methods of ethical expression that are demonstrated in the Giving Voice to Values and Values Education curriculums, prepares you for the real working world.
You will also explore economic stewardship, defining corporate power, the means of earning it and the necessity of legitimacy. We use stakeholder analysis, including the stakeholder ‘hats’ or capacities, to investigate the social and environmental impacts of business, whilst simultaneously learning about the evolving expectations of business and considering human rights.
Finally, you will learn about the important role that corporate governance structures and processes (and the growing willingness of shareholders to use them) have assumed in aligning corporate behavior with the expectations of shareholders and other stakeholders.
