Current Topic Discussion Guidelines
Students must make a minimum of three substantive contributions on three separate days of the learning week to the management discussion topic using authoritative sources including those found in the KU library. Post your response to the discussion question early in the learning week (no later than Wednesday), and then make a minimum of two other posts Thursday through Sunday. All discussions are weighted equally and should be of high quality and add to the learning. The discussion exercise closes on Sunday except the last week. Late discussions are not accepted.
Week 6 Discussion Questions
Milton Friedman wrote that the goal of any business is the maximization of shareholder wealth. What does this mean? Is this goal necessarily ethical or unethical? Justify your stance with research from experts (using APA citations where appropriate).
If you wish to submit your original post to SafeAssign, you first need to go to Discussions – SafeAssign Checks link on the left navigation panel or Getting Started -> Discussions – SafeAssign Checks (Weeks 1-8). In this link, you have unlimited attempts to upload your original post, return to check your SafeAssign score, fix your post if needed, and resubmit the corrected document by selecting the START NEW button. Once you press START NEW, you no longer have access to the previous posts or their SafeAssign scores. So, save those if you need a record to refer to as you make further corrections.
After you have submitted your final version of the original post and you are satisfied with the SafeAssign score and your corrections, copy/paste that same version of the original post to the discussion forum so your classmates and instructor can read it, by following the next steps below.
Remember: WHEN YOU ARE READY TO PLACE YOUR POST IN THE DISCUSSION FORUM AND/OR REPLY TO OTHER THREADS, SELECT THE “WEEK 6 DISCUSSION FORUM” LINK JUST ABOVE.
THEN, IN THE WEEK 6 DISCUSSION FORUM, SELECT THE “REPLY” TO ADD YOUR RESPONSE TO THE DISCUSSION QUESTIONS.
