Note: The readings in this course come from various sections. Some of the lessons are from our That's News to Me section. This section is digital-only; however, the readings are available for any subscriber to assign to their students. The assessments in this course are also digital-only. If you need help using the digital platform, visit our Help Docs.


The 10 readings in this business course are divided into three themes: corporate responsibility, privacy, and entrepreneurship.
