This unit focuses on the ethical implications of business and social worlds which are undergoing digital transformation. The exponential nature of digital transformation, and increasing globalisation of data-based products/services, has resulted in significant changes in the way people, organisations and societies operate, and many associated ethical problems. The key aim of this unit is to equip students with the skills to understand, identify and analyse ethical issues associated with digital transformation. Students will analyse these issues using ethical principles, and explore how ethical principles need to be adapted to address ethical issues in a digitally transformed world.
