Law and Ethics

Courses in business law and business ethics are key to success in the working world.

This is why every Gabelli School student takes a core-curriculum course in each: Legal Framework of Business and Business Ethics.

In the law class, students learn the fundamental rules that govern doing business in the United States—and find out how to apply them in a shifting business landscape. In the ethics course, students explore the issues that affect the stakeholders in a business relationship, debating what constitutes good or bad conduct.

They also consider a question that is central to business education at Fordham: Should a business exist purely for the purpose of profit, or should it contribute to society in a greater way?
