Introduction

With the growing complexity of decision-making and the interdependence of business, political and social issues, effective management requires an understanding of not only the processes inside a company but also of the interaction of business, government and civil society.

This course considers business’s macroenvironment, consisting of the three key segments of business, government and society, and examines each segment on its own followed by an exploration of their interaction. An ethics and responsibilities approach is used to develop a number of key issues facing business and managers, including internal and external stakeholders, ethical practice, lobbying, globalization, and the cultural dimension of business and society.

Course Objectives

The objectives of the course are to develop an understanding of: the components of business’s complex macroenvironment and how they interact; the influence of stakeholders on business and how they can be managed; ethics and social responsibilities; and, the positions of and challenges facing Canada’s government, businesses and civil society, including ethics, globalization and culture.
