This MOOC draws on case studies from New Zealand, which is ranked the world’s least corrupt country (along with Denmark) in Transparency International’s 2019 Corruption Perception Index. It offers a unique New Zealand perspective to learn from.

Partnered with online course provider edX and developed by VUW’s Brian Picot Chair of Ethical Leadership, the course provides an introduction to the theories and practices of ethical leadership, with a focus on organisations. Drawing on New Zealand case studies, the course will enable learners to recognise the role of ethics in organisational decision-making, analyse the actions of leaders from an ethical perspective, and become an ethical leader themselves.

Professor Karin Lasthuizen, Brian Picot Chair of Ethical Leadership, says, “integrity and care tend to be core values in business dealings in New Zealand and this course recognises that ethical leadership has to be underpinned by the values that are unique to each country.”

All types of learners, students and professionals are encouraged to take part in this free course.

The second edition of the edX Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) ‘Ethical Leadership in a Changing World’ goes live on 30 September 2020.

Please sign up through edX for this free course.
