FMN Behavioral Ethics

FMN - 2021/October, Seg 4 - Ethics and Social Responsibility

Potter Stewart, U.S. Supreme Court Justice, once said, "Ethics is knowing the difference between what you have a right to do and what is right to do." But is it really the question of "What is the right thing to do?" or it is deeper than that, as in "How do we get the right thing done?" Steven Mintz, professor emeritus, California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, gives us his views on ethics and social responsibility and if the ethical decision-making models used to teach ethics to accounting students really work.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the fraud triangle;
  • Understand the modifications in the area of whistleblower protection under the Dodd-Frank Act;
  • Identify steps to be considered when making ethical decisions; and
  • Recognize the difference between ethical decision-making models and the PLUS model.

Prerequisites/Advanced Preparation:

Work experience in a corporate staff environment, or an introductory course in ethics.
