BLE 200 Analysis of a Selected Organization's Navigation of Law and Ethics

This project incorporates a number of practical business interactions.

Students will explore ethical issues through movies, YouTube clips, and challenging scenarios. These activities culminate with the Business Interview. Students will formulate questions for a business owner interview. These questions must cover all five assessment competency areas including how the business owner plans for potential disputes, uses contracts, selects a legal entity for the business, deals with government regulations, and understands the role ethics plays in the business operation. Students will then interview an approved business owner and report back on their findings.
