Ethics & Sustainability

Facebook and Uber’s corporate scandals have consumed recent news, and Wall Street’s lack of moral integrity caused the last big recession. Why are ethics being thrown out the window in favour of the bottom line? In this important specialization, B.B.A. students gain a foundational knowledge of social and environmental ethics as they relate to business, equipping them with the tools needed to transform the corporate world for the better.

Graduating students who have fulfilled the requirements for a Bachelor of Business Administration degree may apply for a Specialization in Ethics & Sustainability, if they have successfully completed the following 3.5 credits:

  • 1.5 ADMN credits consisting of ADMN 4250H, 4260H, and 4450H
  • 1.0 credit from PHIL 1100H, PHIL 2110H, PHIL 2390H, PHIL 3110H, PHIL 3120H, PHIL-POST 3140H, PHILPOST 3180H, ERST-PHIL 3301H*, ERST-PHIL 3302H* (or 3300Y*), PHIL-COIS 3370H, or PHIL 4310H
  • 1.0 credit from ERST-POST 2100H, ERST-CASTPOST 3120H, ERSC 3160H, ERST 3250H, ERST-PHIL 3301H*, ERST-PHIL 3302H* (or 3300Y*), ERST 4130H (or 3130H), ERST-PHIL 4705H (or 4700Y), ERSC/ERST 4801H, HIST-ERST 3756H, or INDG-ERSC 4730Y
