BUS 630 - Business Law and Ethics in the Digital Age (3 Credits)

Prerequisite: None
This course examines the convergence of law, ethics, market forces, democratic social norms and the architectures of computer code that form the environment within which online business activities are being shaped and regulated in the global, digital world. It also explores the ethical and public policy issues for law and participatory democracy raised by the development and application of technologies which can be used to remove certain business interests from the jurisdiction of public laws into private, unregulated “trusted systems.” Students in the class will conduct independent scholarly research based on specific business-related areas or topics of interest to them in response to the classroom discussions and the assigned and suggested readings.
