Andover Newton Catalogue and Courses of Instruction
Economics and Ethics, Theology, Ministry and Public LifeEthics and Social Justice
This course is structured to provide students with the basic awareness and understanding of economic ideas, issues, and practices as they intersect with faith and ethics in all spheres of life. It will teach students the basic concepts of economics, finance, accounting, and business decision-making in ways that would equip them to not only grasp the economic foundations of Christian thinking about moral decisions, but also prepare them to minister to professionals, business executives, and leaders in a globalizing world. The course will also help students to respond to one of the major challenges in the marketplace: how can we develop frameworks and models to enable business executives live ethically and faithfully in the complex and pluralistic corporate world? This course fulfills the upper-level ETHI requirement, or a TMPL requirement.
Fall - Tuesday 9:00 - 11:50 a.m.
