Dates: December 2-6, 2013
Days: Monday - Friday
Time: 8:30 am - 5:00 p.m.
Instructor: Barbara Stuart

Description: This course scrutinizes corruption by interrogating the business literature, cases, and public media.  Students will understand and critique existing constructs of corruption, paying particular attention to incentives, external and internal propensities, new and old ways of thinking and behaving.  Students will also consider new research in light of corrupting factors, such as the environments in which corruption thrives, the incentives of politicians or public officials to demand bribes, and welfare consequences.  In particular, students will develop skills of the reflective practitioner and to reconsider our own future options in the face of corruption.  These skills will be used to determine best practices in differing contexts, and develop and strengthen collaborative, critical, and reflective thinking, while at the same time gain confidence and competence in knowledge generation.
