Seminar Behavioral Business Ethics (MA) (Block Course, Kick off will be announced at the beginning of the semester)

Content: This master's seminar focuses on the ethical analysis of human decisionmaking in companies and markets. Ethically relevant decision-making is determined by a wide variety of determinants, including ethical considerations as well as phenomena that can be explained by behavioral science. Studying theories and empirical evidence from business psychology and behavioral economics, we will examine the conditions under which ethical principles can be applied to human actions in companies and markets. The discussion will focus on personal and situational factors, as well as incentive and organizational structures, and technological and cultural conditions.
