related to Digital Business & Innovation
Course ContentAre digital innovations inherently good for business? What about for
society? What competing values are at stake when digital technologies
connect us in new ways? What decisions need to be made when a new
invention opens up unprecedented opportunities to help, but also to
harm? In this course, we explore ethical and moral theories and learn to
apply them to contemporary phenomena in the world of business and
digital innovation. By the end of the course, students should be
familiar with ethical debates and be able to apply a range of
perspectives in order to show different ways of analysing the potential
and actual impacts of digital innovations in a business setting.
