This unit focuses on the ethical role of information systems and business professionals in organisations. The rapid development of information and communication technologies and the rise of global eBusiness have made significant changes in the way people, organisations and societies operate and new ethical, social and professional issues have emerged. The key aim of this unit is to equip the student with the skills to understand, identify and analyse these issues. The unit will consider some of the key ethical and social issues that have arisen as a result of global eBusiness and provide practical experience in policy analysis and project management.
