This course is a provocative discussion of ethical issues in accounting and finance and their resolution focusing on an important component, your gut instinct. We will explore what it is, how to apply it, how it can help you and its relationship to the Code of Ethics. Your gut instinct can serve as an important tool, especially when paired with other formal analysis methods to drive improved ethical decision-making. We will review examples in financial reporting, contract payments, job interviews, fund-raising, government grant programs and more.
By the end of this course, you will be able to:
- Determine when to trust your gut over a systemic analysis in ethical decision-making
- Gain insights into an “ethics gut” and where it comes from
- Identify the consequences of ignoring your gut
- Explore the correlation between an “ethics gut” and the code of ethics
