Navigating a Dynamic Legal Environment

Rules and regulations have proliferated at all levels of the organization, and successful managers need to understand when and how to integrate legal considerations into their business planning and operations. Each Opus College of Business student is required to take one course concerning the legal environment in which businesses operate.

Leaders are expected to be able to recognize the ethical dimensions of decisions and to choose well in difficult situations. Our courses acquaint students with tools of ethical decision-making and with typical ethical challenges, both domestic and international. Each Opus College of Business student is required to take at least one course on business ethics.
