EMU's College of Business offers new online corporate ethics training program

YPSILANTI —Got ethos? Eastern Michigan University’s College of Business (COB) will help you answer that question through its new Online Ethics Training Modules.

The training modules are designed to teach business professionals how to avoid ethical lapses, and make the right business decisions based on self-knowledge and an understanding of organizational standards and expectations, David Mielke, dean of the COB, said. Through interactive presentations, dynamic exercises and real-world case studies, professionals will gain a comprehensive and improved understanding of how to maintain the highest professional ethical standards, he said.

“In the increasingly conscience-focused 21st century business world, the demand for ethical standards is increasing,” Mielke said. “These new modules will raise awareness and provide a foundation for ethical business practices within your organization. They are  built on the theory it is possible to change and influence an organization’s ethical culture.”

Professionals can register anytime and complete each module at their own pace, learning from expert EMU College of Business faculty, Mielke said. Each module takes up to an hour and a half to complete. The cost of the three available modules (Business Professional Dynamic Model, Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and Business Ethics) is $159, with corporate and EMU College of Business alumni discounts available.

EMU’s College of Business has been ranked among the “Best Business Schools” five straight years, according to The Princeton Review. The college hosts the nation’s only Ethos Week each year in March and is also the first to create an “Ethos Statement” and “Ethos Honor Society.”  Visit cob.emich.edu for more information.
