Excellent, In-Depth, Well Organized. This course takes the learner on a journey of self discovery while at the same time teaching profound lessons in what it is that they can personally do, in their own life, job, career, to ensure they never are ensnared in a situation where ethical blindness takes over. Great thinkers of the past and of our time are utilized as well as current events to bring the course together. The Professors are highly invested in ensuring that this is a productive learning experience. As with any course you will get out of it what you put in, and here the Professors have gone above and beyond to ensure the concepts are clear, easily applied and can be shared. Highly recommend this to all, it applies to life as well as organizations. Cannot say enough great things about this course and feeling included in the live class going on at the same time. Highly recommend !!!

I expected to learn more about how our contexts shape our behaviours and my expectations were perfectly met. The course is one of the best I have done so far. It sharpened my awareness about how our peers and working environments influence us in a profound way. The discussions on the forums were delightful and the instructors also were very active and tried to engage with us through the forums and regular Google hangouts. We learnt about many examples of unethical decisions in organizations such as the Ford Pinto and the Challenger disaster and how the circumstances lead people who were not evil by nature to behave in a way that produced very evil outcomes. In the final week we learnt how to defend ourselves against the mechanism that make us ethically blind. Since we are all embedded in some sort of context I recommend this course to anyone with all my heart.
