MPA603 - Ethics Seminar in Public Administration

This course examines the ethical, moral, and legal dilemmas of public, private, and nonprofit management decision-making. Through case study analysis students will gain insight into the appearance versus the actual conflicts of interest; learn how to prevent fraud, waste and abuse; and establish a zero tolerance for issues of personal gain, influence peddling and other corrupt practices common to the work environment. Special topics will focus on crafting appropriate codes of ethics and standards of conduct for both employer and employee to strengthen management and organizational ethics and culture.
